Who will inherit this new Earth?

The last remnants of the human race left a dying Earth, desperate to find a new home among the stars. Following in the footsteps of their ancestors, they discover the greatest treasure of the past age -- a world terraformed and prepared for human life.

But all is not right in this new Eden. In the long years since the planet was abandoned, the work of its architects has borne disastrous fruit. The planet is not waiting for them, pristine and unoccupied. New masters have turned it from a refuge into mankind's worst nightmare.

Now two civilizations are on a collision course, both testing the boundaries of what they will do to survive. As the fate of humanity hangs in the balance, who are the true heirs of this new Earth? Span

Unique perspective

Though I thought the story slow to start, it was very rewarding in the end. The solution to conflict between two extremely different life forms was interesting.

Fast read!

Although the premise of intelligent space-traveling spiders is bizarre, he makes it work with tight narrative that kept me turning pages in order to finish this in one day. Good fast read!

It Just Works. ,

A Grand Achievement

Quite simply the best sci-fi book I’ve read in 30 years. I’ve not added a book to my list of favorites in a decade but do so here. Outstanding in every single way.
