The Uplift books are tied for my favorite sci fi series with Asimov's original Foundation series This is sci fi at its very best Brin goes through an astonishing number of fascinating ideas and concepts but leaves them for the reader to peruse or discard Want racial allegory Sure Prefer religion Plenty of it Political intrigue It's there by the truckloadWhen Brin goes into pretend science he goes all in One can almost sense his smirk going through this first book that's right this book has talking chimpanzees and dolphin haikus and spaceships flying into the sun Wanna fight about it It works and the mileage he forces out of it is outstandingAnd to top everything off he makes a point of tying off each book with an epic space battle punctuated with a stunt humans come up with that surprises or angers their alien counterparts for sheer boldness and audacity What's not to love

Ares for the most momentous voyage in history a journey into the boiling inferno of the sun From the Paperback editi.
