Review:

''Outstanding! . . . The best ever, by the best in the field . . . The ultimate combination of imagination and realism. '' --Tom Clancy

''The Legacy of Heorot is well written, action packed, and tension filled . . . Makes Aliens look like a Disney nature film.'' --Washington Post

''Page-turning action and suspense, good characterization, and convincing setting . . . May be the best thing any of those authors has written.'' --Denver Post

''Spine-tingling ecological tale of terror . . . A story as relentless as the great white shark of Jaws.'' --Locus

''Entertaining . . . The novel is best in its sympathetic treatment of the once formidable scientists who wake from cold sleep with impaired mental powers.'' --Publishers Weekly

''The book's tough realism and complex characters make the story seem frighteningly real; it reads much like a Stephen King horror novel.'' --School Library Journal
