Synopses & Reviews
New York Times
best-seller Hogan brings on another “huge idea” SF adventure thriller. A generation starship blasts off to the stars with ALL the vying cultures of a post-apocalypse Earth aboard. They’ll either find a way to live together – or destroy one another for the second, and final, time!
From the ashes of post-apocalypse Earth a new order has arisen to reach for the stars. Planet of salvation Hera is discovered and a generation ship will carry a select group from wrecked, ravaged Earth to a better future for their children. But who to take on the voyage? Why not your best and brightest tech-smiths and tinkerers? And, as far as political systems go, heck, why not send along everything – representatives of ALL the societies and political systems now surviving? It’s a desperate gamble to forge an intergalactic species of humanity – on the trip out!
