Omega (Academy - Book 4) Summary

Omega (Academy - Book 4) by Jack McDevitt

'No one writing today is better than McDevitt at combining galaxy-spanning adventure with the genuine novel of ideas' Washington Post Book World

A civilization-destroying Omega cloud has switched direction, heading straight for a previously unexplored planetary system - and its alien society.

A handful of brave humans must try to save an entire world ... without revealing their existence.

'McDevitt handles the back story so adroitly that readers unfamiliar with earlier volumes in this series should have no trouble following the action' New York Times Book Review

Omega (Academy - Book 4) Reviews

Jack McDevitt is that splendid rarity, a writer who is a storyteller first and a science fiction writer second. In his ability to absolutely rivet the reader, it seems to me that he is the logical heir to Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke -- Stephen King
A story rich in detail and filled with action ... This taut tale of SF suspense belongs in most collections * Library Journal *
