The first best is of course Far-Seer .... the first volume in this trilogy. But this one is a very worthy follow up. Whereas the first was about a dinosaurian Galileo, this one is about a dinosaurian Darwin. Worth the price just for the great cover, but it's what between the covers that shows why Sawyer has won both the Nebula and the Hugo. Exciting and fast-paced .... filled with sense of wonder.
