about this book

The sequel to The Lives of Tao

The Prophus and the Genjix are at war. For centuries they have sought a way off-planet, guiding humanity’s social and technological development to the stage where space travel is possible. The end is now in sight, and both factions have plans to leave the Earth, but the Genjix method will mean the destruction of the human race.

That’s a price they're willing to pay.

It’s up to Roen and Tao to save the world. Oh, dear...
 
“At times treading close to outright comedy, this is a fast-paced sf adventure that is, if you look at it from the right angle, more accurately a political thriller posing as an sf adventure. Fans of the first novel will have a great time, and newcomers should have no trouble picking up the plot’s various threads as the story moves along. Great stuff.”
Booklist Starred Review

“The relationships between humans and their alien passengers continue to fascinate in this sequel to The Lives of Tao.
