Book Description
In the far future, humanity began to search the stars, sending out vast spaceships that would take generations to reach their goals. In the depths of space they encountered the Ildiran empire - apparently the galaxy's only other intelligent civilization. The Ildirans came to Earth and passed on the knowledge of their stardrive, allowing humanity to expand to the stars.
Almost two hundred years after that first contact, there are human colonies proliferating through the galaxy. As Mankind seizes the future, danger comes from the past, for two human archaeologists glean forbidden knowledge from the ruins of a dead world. Once, the insect-like Klikiss ruled the stars. Now, only their robot servants remain, guardians of a terrible technology - the Klikiss Torch, which has the power to create suns. Now, Humanity prepares to flex its new found muscle and activate the Torch for the first time in millennia, but there are reasons the Klikiss empire fell, and a train of events is about to be set in motion, that will change the universe...

    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.
