Pali: a public relations director, who broods far too much on her unfulfilled ambitions. Ramo: a flamboyant senso-dancer and sculptor, who prefers a musical jamdam to serious conversation. Sage: an awkward systems designer, for whom the AI rapture-field is realer than life. And three of the alien Ell: Harybdartt, who would rather die with dignity than betray his people; Lingrhetta, who tries to unravel the meaning of human dance and music, pain and love; and Moramaharta, the binder, who must persuade his fellow decision-makers to risk everything for the sake of a fragile bridge of understanding across the stars.
I enjoyed this one greatly. Skip this list. Ratings and Book Reviews 4 31 star ratings 4 reviews. Overall rating 3. Yes No Thanks for your feedback! Report as inappropriate. Chapter one had great potential. Chapter two was trite, I began fast forwarding. Dresses with lights, red gravity beams at the disco Bailed early in chapter 3. But if I bail, it failed. Ok, not great.
Wished for more character development, esp the AI. Will read the sequel if there is one.
This work was quite satisfactory in tone, style and arc. I would definitely enjoy reading more work from this author. Elgin on September 5, A well taught lesson about the danger of assumptions wrapped in a gripping tale of inter-galatic thought and adventure. But, alas, she had no suit to change into. A suit, a damn suit, she should have worn a goddammed suit!
Even though she had been living in the city for a few years, this was the first time that Cass had actually managed to attend the elite New Years party hosted by Ryan himself.

For this occasion, she wore an owl mask with gilded golden feathers to mask her features- and hopefully conceal how uncomfortable she looked. The number was a bodycon black with long sleeves and a high collar, a slit going up the side of her left leg to give her freedom of movement. Not that she expected to do much moving tonight. Grabbing a glass of champagne and sipping it meekly, blue eyes scanned the crowd, all masked like her, as they mingled and danced across the glimmering hall. Despite her awkwardness in places this glamourous, Cass was blessed to be here; a place she could pursue her interests and passions without having the watchful eye of society criticizing her every move.

Recognizing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make first contact, Alex pulls off a daring maneuver to latch on to the derelict. Alex discovers the ship was attacked by an unknown craft, the first of its kind ever encountered. The mysterious silver ship's attack was both instant and deadly. War between the stars. It was started by an AI, and few humans even knew there was a war at all.

But now people are dying, not just robots and aliens—and the AI wants it to stop. But a war is easier to start than to stop, and the computer can't alter its course without outside help. When the Gnostic Control System searches for conspirators, it chooses its friends carefully. I loved the sci-fi elements, which are quite extensive, but found the character-building of most of the human characters to be quite dull.
That was its only shortcoming IMO.

Overall a solid read if you can get past the first hour or two. I've read this book a few times over the years and it never fails to spark my imagination and hope for technology and humanity. I love how Mr. Carver paints pictures in the mind with such deft brush strokes while allowing the characters to blaze forth in all their glory. An amazing blueprint for AI design.
