Withnbsp; fully realized characters, plenty of twists and turns, and a plot inspired by chaos theory, this exciting hard SF adventure will keep readers on the edge of their seats.nbsp;

John Bandicut andnbsp;several aliens and artificial intelligences have been thrown together by a force greater than themselves to prevent cataclysmic disasters on an interstellar scale. Now, before they can take a break after a world-saving mission, they are pulled into a waystation that is being threatened by highly destructive gravity waves.

The waves are part of a much larger problem. Something is causing stars to become unstable and go prematurely nova--they're being murdered.nbsp;When the waystation is destroyed by the gravity waves, Bandicut and his crew barely escape on a jury-rigged ship.nbsp;Their destinationnbsp;isnbsp;a star nursery in the Orion Nebula, where sentient stars are being driven to destruction by an artificial intelligence bent on remaking the cosmos in its own image.

Could not make it past the first few chapters.

The rating would be better except: a) The Quarx is a weird character and more than hard to believe considering what it does (even in a Sci-Fi novel); and b) Li-Jared does almost nothing in the whole book (could easily have been left out). In general I enjoyed this book and look forward to another from this author to see if age improves the stories.
