Convergent Series

One off of the guilty pleasures file. It’s a little reminiscent of Larry Niven’s Known Space series. I picked it up on a whim a while ago and finally got around to reading it. It’s a bit of hard sci-fi and a bit of space opera mixed together. The story revolves around a group of people trying to figure out what the artifacts left behind by a mysterious race known as The Builders are for. It eventually leads them to some stunning revelations and a trip outside the galaxy, but not before a number of close calls with death. The ending neatly sets up the next book in the series while answering the majority of the plot issues raised in the book.
