Publisher's Summary

The world Corus has been redesigned to become the new home of a superior race from a distant world whose very life depends on drawing sustenance from the biological life force of a planet. Meanwhile their plans are supervised by a staff of Alectors who in effect rule the world. The Alectors alone have access to the huge, flying pteridons they have bred and the superior weapons that underpin their psychic talents.

The time is now fast approaching for the transfer of the whole population from the old world, nearly bled dry of life force, to Corus. But neither the Alectors (who will be reduced in status when the real powers arrive) nor the local humans (who seem destined to become no more than cattle, though they know nothing of this) are ready. And the mysterious Ancient Ones, the true natives of Corus and assumed to have died out in eons past, still survive, and they have their own powers. The situation builds toward an explosive climax.

    "Enjoyable read if rehash"

    I enjoyed reading Cadmian's Choice because it is so well-written. I do however have a sneaking suspicion that I've read this book about two times before. This is probably my eighth book by L. E. Modesitt Junior. The formula of the military hero fights against the evil electors is becoming slightly stale. We keep changing heroes but they are completely the same hero. I highly suggest this writer but if you read up to this point in the series I think it's time to move on.

    "The great stories just keep on coming!"

    Years ago I discovered my first L. E. Moddesit book, since then I have become a huge fan. His ability to bring to life his characters and worlds is outstanding.
