As astronaut Alex Boten prepares for a test of a cutting-edge quantum physics system that should open the door to unlimited exploration of space, a cascade failure begins. In the culmination of the catastrophe, he is propelled 50,000 light years away from Earth--into orbit above an earthlike planet known as Mirrus. On this pre-renaissance planet, people live in a perpetual night. The sailing ship Ammanon Delor is set for a dangerous voyage, chartered by a man who has been bringing his people into an era of scientific understanding. This scientist has a secret--a secret that troubles him, as well as the planet's ruling elite. Hoping the Delor's journey might resolve the questions this secret has posed, the authorities sweep aside objections and approve the charter. During the expedition, startling phenomena suggest the imminent fulfillment of the people's most ancient prophecies. When Alex is discovered by Mirrus' human-like inhabitants, they try to cast him in a role he feels duty bound, and honor bound, to refuse-- if he can. Through it all, Alex must deal with the ghosts of his own past, and his reactions to a culture disorientingly idyllic, a culture near perfection-- but a culture with its own secrets, its own shame, and a history that will come to threaten them all. The first quarter of the soft cover version was been re-ordered to make it more accessible to most readers. The hard cover version hews closer to the author's original vision, but offers a more challenging read.
