Salvation or Annihilation?

A strange artifact has been discovered on a distant planet, an artifact that may be the key to humanity's salvation. For we at war with the Fallers, an alien race bent on nothing short of genocide, and this is a war we are losing. The artifact is not only a powerful weapon, but possibly the rosetta stone to a lost superscience . . . a superscience that the Fallers may have already decoded. Or it may be a doomsday machine that could destroy the very fabric of space.

"Kress's always excellent characters wrestle with a splendid array of puzzles and problems, human, alien, and scientific: another resounding success for this talented sure-footed writer."-"Kirkus Reviews" (Starred Review) "The author grounds her morally complex plot in the physics of probability. As usual with Kress, her eccentric characters add depth. Readers will start this novel because of Kress's reputation, will read it for the adventure and will like it for the characters and the science."--"Publishers Weekly " "The immediate sequel to "Probability Moon." The questions that permeate the tightly paced story are whether scientists and the military can cooperate to learn the nature of the artifact--scientific storehouse or doomsday machine--and whether either of those parties will procure the cooperation of the captive Faller, whose perception of reality is unfathomably different from that of any of the humans. Displaying a typically strong synthesis of Kress' many gifts, the novel leaves the door wide open for at least one successor."--"Booklist" "Kress has blended such a nice set of surprises and inevitabilities that you should learn and read and enjoy them for yourself. You don't have to read "Probability Moon "to have a good time, but you'll probably search it out anyway."--"San Diego Union-Tribune"
