Access to the unstable Quake was supposed to be prohibited, but some very insistent travelers were determined to make the trip. Professor Darya Lang, who studied artifacts left by the long-vanished aliens called the Builders, had a hunch that she might find the Builders themselves. Louis Nenda and the Cecropian Atvar H'sial had their own interests in Quake, and would do anything to get there. And Councilor Julius Graves was hunting murderers - if they were hiding on Quake, he would find them.
Planetary Administrators Hans Rebka and Max Perry had no choice but to go to Quake - risking their lives to protect the others - and to learn, just maybe, the secret of Summertide and the Builders.

Good but careful
Be careful, the book (and for the most part, the series) is good. But the ending to the series is pretty darn disappointing.
one of the little aliens
it was hard toget into, the first 2 CD' were all history and technical info that was later needed in the book. Once past this the book got very good.
As a sci-fi fan of many years I found this book to be very enjoyable, easy to follow in the audio format, and an excellent story. I plan to get all four in the series.
Hard science fiction with very few frills. Direct and to the point with very good narration. Introduces the Heritage series, answers a couple of questions but poses more. I really enjoy this type of science fiction and will listen the the next 3 books.
