    Twenty-seven years later, the Firstborn are back. This time, they have sent a "quantum bomb" speeding toward Earth, a device that human scientists can barely comprehend, let alone stop or destroy. But when shocking new insights emerge about the nature of the Firstborn and their plans, an unexpected ally appears from light-years away.

    I read all three of the books in this series, hoping they would improve. They didn't. The plot moves along in a tedious, jerky fashion with long sections of flatulent dialogue that would be meaningful only if it were to be converted into a soap opera. Not porno, just pages and pages of meaningless, politically correct psychobabble. Clarke's science is weak, as it is in all his books. Lots of bashing of all his pet peeves, as he always does. I bought this last book out of desperation for something to read. Shame on me.

    Neal Stephenson hacks into the secret histories of nations and the private obsessions of men, decrypting with dazzling virtuosity the forces that shaped this century.

    Garbage is the nicest word I can think of to describe this so-called book. No meaningful plot or continuity to speak of for anyone out of comic books. Written in a snotty, whiny, I-hate-the-world know-it-all style you would dexpect from a 13-year old dropout. A total fraud, They need to pay the reader for plowing through this (expletive deleted). Avoid at all costs.

    The Indowy "Bane Sidhe" conspiracy has grown strong, and the cunning and resourceful Darhel - tacit rulers of the Galactic Federation - have decided that the time has come to wipe that threat from the stars forever. What the Darhel don't know is that humans have joined the rebellion - led by thief and assassin extraordinaire, Cally O'Neal. Now Cally is set to destroy a web of alien deceit millennia in the making.

    Overall

    Very disappointing. Not at all up to Ringo's usual standard. All of the "pungency" of his usual works, but without the continuity or intricacy of plot. This is the first time I've been burned on a Ringo book. Guess it had to happen sometime. My advice: pass this one by.
