The first aliens to contact Earth, mysterious beings called the Travellers, bring the gift of immortality to those humans who choose to accept it--and the price it exacts. While most people leap at the chance to live forever, even at the cost of their humanity, a few hold on to their mortality and find themselves the inheritors of a strangely transformed future. This latest novel by the author of A Bridge of Years (LJ 8/91) combines expert storytelling with a thoughtful exploration of the bond between mortality and the human condition. A good choice for most libraries.
