Book Description
The author of the New York Times bestsellers Dune: House Atreides and Star Wars: Darksaber delivers the first book in an all-new epic science fiction adventure trilogy.In our galaxys distant future, humans are one of three known intelligent races. Having had the ability to navigate star travel for only a few centuries, we are considered the new kids on the block in a long- established universe. The second intelligent race is the Ildirans, who are ruled by their Mage-Imperator; and the third race, the Klikiss, seems to have vanished and left behind a world full of artifacts and remarkable technology, which humans are now beginning to find and utilize. One such piece of technology is a device that has the power to turn a gaseous and useless supergiant planet into a small sun, thereby creating a new solar system in which humans can live. But when the device is tried for the first time, it awakens the wrath of a previously unsuspected fourth race, the Hydroguesand a galaxy-spanning war that threatens all life begins.

    This book took me a really long time to get into and I almost abandoned it, but in the end I'm glad I didn't. There are sooo many characters that it is really easy to get lost and forget what's going on with each character. It reminded me of George R. R. Martin's Fire and Ice series, but it takes place in outer space instead of on a fantasy world. By the end of the book, I was definitely hooked and will be looking for the next in this series.

    Il libro ha alti e bassi, la struttura è molto simile a quella dei romanzi di Martin, ovvimanete in chiave fantascientifica, interessanti e ben delineati alcuni personaggi, tanta, ma proprio tanta carne al fuoco, personalmente non ho gradito gli "alberi telepatici" , gli Ildiran mi ricordano un pò gli Eldar di Warhammer 40k, interessante la parte con gli archeologi. Tutto sommato una lettura divertente ma non so se procederò con la saga.
