Publisher Comments:

The climactic novel of the star-spanning Quadrail space opera...

In Timothy Zahn's Judgment at Proteus, the Quadrail that connects the twelve civilizations of our galaxy has been the flashpoint of a battle for dominance fought mostly unnoticed by humankind. But Frank Compton of Earth, aided by the enigmatic woman Bayta, has fought on the front lines, using every bit of his human ingenuity and secret agent skills to outwit the Modhri, a group intelligence that would control the minds of every sentient being it can touch.

Following a trail of deception and death to Proteus Station, Compton has discovered a conspiracy that threatens all life in the galaxy: the Shonklaraa, an ancient enemy thought to be long dead, is rising again. So serious is the danger that the Modhri, the enemy of his enemy, may now be his friend, as the burgeoning threat of a race of invincible soldiers emerges.

If Compton and Bayta cant stop them, the Shonklaraa will decimate all who oppose them, destroying the Quadrail and billions of lives throughout the galaxy.

Review:

"One of the first new writers to rivet my attention so thoroughly I almost missed my train. Since then he's grown impressively, and remains one of science fictions best practitioners of solid imagining and storytelling." Stanley Schmidt, Analog

Review:

"Tim Zahn is a master of tactics and puts his own edge on complex hard-SF thrillers. His original work is sure to please his legions of Star Wars fans." Kevin J. Anderson, New York Times bestselling coauthor of Dune: The Battle of Corrin

Review:

"Timothy Zahn's Judgment at Proteus delivers exactly what his many fans expect: memorable characters, intricate plot, fascinating ideas, and more than a modicum of wit." Mike Resnick, award-winning science fiction and fantasy author

Emma Engel, January 1, 2013 (view all comments by Emma Engel)
An original villain, a harden PI, a beautiful girl, and space trains filled with aliens...can it get any better? How about the final book of the series actually tying up all the loose threads and leaving the reader satisfied as they turn the last page? With stunning settings, compelling characters, and a provocative plot, the entire Quadrail Series is a must read for science fiction fans. Timothy Zahn has never failed to produce magnificent stories, but Judgement at Proteus is his finest to date.
