Vernor Vinge's 1992 novel A Fire Upon the Deep (9780812515282) won a Hugo Award and put fans on tenterhooks waiting for its sequel. Now, nearly two decades later, it's here. In the novel, Ravna Bergndot and "the children of the sky" have aged ten years, but little rest awaits these survivors of a human catastrophe. One early reader set the stage: "Imagine bootstrapping a fallen civilization into transcendence using nothing but a collection of hive-mind Machiavellis, a crippled hyperadvanced spaceship, and a pack of surly, scheming orphaned adolescents. Oh, and then there's the vengeful god ramscooping itself to relativistic speeds a mere thirty light years away." A masterful sequel by a three-time Hugo Award-winning author.
