    Description

    The long-awaited conclusion of the Heorot series from genre legends Larry Niven, Jerry Pournelle, and Steven Barnes

    Avalon was thriving. The cold sleep colonists from Earth had settled on a verdant, livable world. The fast and cunning predators humans named “grendels” were under control, and the mainland outposts well established. Avalon’s new mainland hydroelectric power station was nearly complete, and when on-line would compensate for the nuclear power systems lost in the Grendel Wars. Humans would have power, and with power came the ability to make all the necessities for life. They would survive. 

    They would not survive as a spacefaring people. 

    What they were losing faster than they knew was the ability to get to space. But unbeknownst to the planet-bound humans, something was moving out there in the stars, decelerating at a rate impossible for a natural object. And its destination was Avalon. The most probable origin was Earth’s solar system. 

    This is a novel of first contact - between the human Starborn and the self-named Godsons who followed on, between the first generation of Avalon-born humans and their descendants, and between humans and the almost ineffably alien species native to their new world....

    What's not to like if you like real SciFi

    I have read most of the novels written by these guys and they are all genuine, thought provoking, beautifully crafted true Science Fiction. What a relief that there are still folks that write Science Fiction and not that fantasy tripe. I like some fantasy but why does it always get grouped with Science Fiction; I guess the grouping is done by folks that have not read science fiction. This is another great example of true Science Fiction.

    excellent

    excellent read, my only problem is that the narrator tended to talk a little too quickly and was just short of tripping over his own word.

    Great story befitting Niven, Pournelle, Barnes

    Third in the trilogy. Follows the storyline with a few edits. Excellent if you enjoy the author’s collaborative work. Very good character development, plenty of action consistent with the story.

    Great closure

    Really enjoyed this. Great way to end the series. It's a shame there won't be more.

    When I read the first book

    When I first read book one years ago I was impressed. Then again, there are a bunch of books by these guys I love. I’m sadden to understand that this will be the last in the series as it seems to be the gateway to another set of books.

    Excellent story and it works into the entire mythos of Avalon.

    truly a fine ending to a great series

    from the very beginning this book started out strong all in its own but when it meshed in with the existing stories before it it became a full circle series. I only hope the Larry Niven will do the same thing for the interval trees series.
