    1. This is the sequel to Life Probe and although it does end it certainly seems like a sequel could easily be developed This one takes place 300 years after the end of the previous book and so there is an entirely new cast of characters Unfortunately, those characters seemed a bit wooden to me, probably because the author packs so much plot into relatively few pages In essence this is a homecoming novel humans sent out from Earth to explore and now returning after a couple of centuries It is fun to [...]


    2. sequel to Life Probe.Now we knew about origins of Star Travellers, who Maker s solar system actually look and minor details like why I masses doesn t explode due Hawking radiation, why it s so difficult to grasp FTL and why view spoiler there are no Makers in their home solar system hide spoiler


    3. The nice thing about this book is that I read it not knowing it was a sequel and the author managed to give me a totally satisfying back story without that forced sequel fill in feel Not many authors can pull that off This book could truly be a stand alone.


    4. Another fun read science fiction novel by Michael McCollum, this one a continuation of the novel Life Probe set 300 years after the events told in the first book Recommended for all science fiction fans.


    5. A quick re read of an old favorite I still really enjoy the the story told within these pages.4 Stars for a really fun read.





    6. Unentertaining and bizarrely unsuspenseful When you compare this to, say, Vinge s _A Deepness in the Sky_ which has a somewhat similar superior colonizer theme, you see just how much is lacking.



    7. Still a good book This was one of the first adult science fiction books I read meaning it wasn t marketed to teens or younger , and I still enjoy it.
