Keith Stoner lay frozen in an alien spacecraft for fifteen long years; during that time he came to be something more than just an astronaut, just a man. Stoner became partly alien hismelf--merged with an alien intelligence embodied in the nanotechnology that lived inside Stoner's body.
The alien whose tomb that spacecraft was, brought humanity both a blessing and a deadly peril. The technology now the control of Vanguard Industries has changed the face of the earth. The technology that lives in Stoner's bloodstream will change mankind forever.
There are powerful leaders, both corporate and political, who are becoming aware of Keith Stoner and the power he seems to control. They want that power for themselves, and will do anything to gain it. Nothing Stoner can say or do will convince these ruthless men and women that the power they seek may destroy them utterly.

The best of the three
Of course you must read these in order! When you do, you may, as I did, find this to be the best. But without the background it is trivial and meaningless.
Not that good
I really like Bova and have been a fan for years. This book is just not that good. The story is weaker than the first two books and was disappointing. It could have been great. He tries to use the book to tie up some loose ends from his other books and by doing so takes away from his earlier work. I think the god-like abilities he gives his characters is out of place and doesn't really make sense. Overall I enjoyed the trilogy, but this book left me wishing he had stopped after the second book.
