Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Invasions from space have been a common theme in science fiction almost since the beginning. Xenophobia is not the only reason; writers have always been intrigued by the thought of unknown beings with strange powers pitted against the entrenched strengths of our entire world. Here Gregory Benford brings the theme to life once more, in a thoughtful and taut adventure story.
