Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Senior co-administrator of the Norcoast Salmon Research Facility, Dr. Mackenzie Connor was a biologist who studied the spawning habits of salmon. Then, last season, just as she and Dr. Emily Mamani were starting their research, they were interrupted by the arrival of Brymn, the first Dhryn to set foot on Earth.

And suddenly everything changed for Mac, Emily, Brymn, the human race, and all the member races of the Interspecies Union. Base was attacked, Em was kidnapped by the mysterious Ro, Mac nearly lost her life when she and Brymn escaped to the peaceful, isolationist Dhryn home world. But the Dhryn are in the process of abandoning it, hurtling out on an unfathomable path of destruction through civilized space.

As the enemy destroys life on planet after planet, the IU organizes a secret Gathering of every being with information on the Dhryn. With the data available there, Mac begins to suspect that the Dhryn's actions may be a response to something simpler and more deadly—the imperative to migrate. But even if Mac is right, can she and her team discover why this is happening and how to halt the Dhryn?

Review:

"After encountering the alien Dhyrn on earth and later nearly dying on the Dhyrn home world in Czerneda's Survival (2004), biologist Mackenzie 'Mac' Connor returns to her job at Norcoast Salmon Research Facility in the Pacific Northwest in this action-filled sequel, which likewise explores the complexities of interspecies culture and understanding with humor and dash. When the Interspecies Union discovers that the formerly peaceful Dhryn have abandoned their world and set off across space, destroying every life form in their path, Mac leads the effort to find a way to stop them. Her Dhryn experience and knowledge of biological drives and animal instinct may provide the key — but her expertise also makes her a target for a hidden enemy, who may have already infiltrated the Interspecies Union. Czerneda's characterizations, both human and alien, are as intricate and entertaining as the twisty plot. Fans of SF adventure and intrigue — and of C.J. Cherryh's masterfully drawn alien cultures, in particular — are in for a treat." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Returning to her research facility on Earth in time for spring migration, Mac believes she is now free to pick up her life again. But the enemy is on the move, destroying planet after planet.
