I must start off by saying that I am a huge Ben Bova fan and was looking forward to reading this continuation of his Orion series. This book does a good job in that, but I have to say it is the weakest of the story lines in this series.
I did find it entertaining all the way through and as usual it is pretty educational, that is a part of his writing that I enjoy a lot, but the story, although seeming to be a good idea, got to be a bit tame. Having said that, I hope there are more to come in the Orion series.

This series is consistently good, it is a unique concept in science fiction/fantasy, and the historical interpretation is enlightening. It is, perhaps, time that the series is concluded.
