FIRESTAR became a epic series of four books of which this is the important first. It was followed by Rogue Star (1998), Lodestar (2000), and Falling Stars (2001).
"Firestar is an extraordinary achievement, beautifully and vividly written, full of real people . . . the history of a future that can be ours, in our own lifetimes, if only we had the vision and courage to create it."--Poul Anderson
