Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Readers who remember Ringworld from earlier encounters will no doubt relish the latest installment of the saga.” New York Times Book Review
“Niven’s work has been an intriguing and consistent universe, and this book is the keystone of the arch…[His] technique is wonderfully polished, his characters and their situations are nicely drawn…Wraps up (maybe) a corner of a very interesting universe.” San Diego Union-Tribune
“Another sequel to Ringworld is cause for celebration…Any addition to Niven’s famous series should attract plenty of readers.” Booklist
“Vampires gather, the Protectors interfere with other species, and someone is destroying incoming spacecraft, forcing Louis Wu to return to become Ringworld’s Central Protector…Highly recommended for SF collections.” Library Journal
“An honored SF writer returns to his best-known creation: the artificial world, built far from Earth by aliens over a half million years ago, in the form of a ring six hundred million miles in diameter, hosting an astonishing multitude of inhabitants and cultures. This third fictional voyage to the Ringworld…displays Niven’s deft hand at portraying aliens.” Publishers Weekly
“Ringworld admirers will surely wish to investigate.” Kirkus Reviews
