Read full description of the books:
i was pleasantly suprised by this one. Essentially it's a first contact novel, but very scientifically plausible. The author has great street creds and has written stories for Analog, Asimov's etc. so I kind of knew what to expect when I began. But what I didn't expect (and was happy to see) were fairly robust, fleshed out characters. Their interaction really drove the story beyond the science of it all. There was also some exploration of social issues and ramifications of the discovery of intelligent life beyond our planet; i.e religion, international competition, and even racial issues. These were really just touched on, not deeply developed, and not getting in the way of the actual story.
This is the first of a two-parter, with the sequel, Procyon's Promise waiting in my wings.
