EW's GRADE
C

Details Release Date: Mar 18, 2004; Writer: Gregory Benford; Genres: Fiction, Sci-fi and Fantasy

Cley, the last human on an earth ruled by highly evolved Supras, joins a talking raccoon on a space-time journey to confront a multidimensional force bent on galaxy-cide.

Logline A Brief History of Time meets Babe

Source of Angst Cley's taut relationship with the Supras: ''She suddenly sensed that they were as strange as any beast she had seen in the swelling forests -- and more dangerous.''

Key Concepts Interplanetary biology, genetic manipulation

Lowdown The deep physics is trippy at times, but Benford's bad guy is characterless.
