Book summary

This latest instalment of the Babylon 5 series is the beginning of a trilogy that explores the origins of the infamous Psi Corps and the interrelationship with the future and the past origins of earth in the 21st century.

Greg Keyes has caught the flavour and action-packed themes of the Babylon 5 series co- authors Jane Killick, John Vornholt, and others, that allows for the combination of future societies and their own dilemmas with current 20th-century political and social trends that are blended into a thought provoking and sinister analogy on man's own worst enemy--mankind itself.

The Psi Corps is a world government agency that has been developed to organise and control the newly emerged but enviable part of the world's population that enjoys various degrees of telepathic powers. The Corps, its leaders and the multi- cultural earth government have an agenda that sets off fractions within the telepathic community that results in a twisting and surprising plot that sets the scene for the next few centuries of earth history.

Greg Keyes writes well and his descriptions of the human suffering and emotional traumas encountered by all who have contact with the Psi cops and their international band of informants is both engrossing and thought provoking. The future can often be based in the past and the build up to the situations encountered by the characters has a firm basis on recent political and social history. The next instalment of this trilogy should set the pace for a continued and interesting exploration into the future and man's relationships not only with the unknown but also with himself. -- Brian Reinker [via]
