Probability Sun Free read ☆ 6 ë Salvation or AnnihilationA strange artifact has been discovered on a distant planet an artifact that may be the key to humanity's salvation For we at war with the Fallers an alien race bent on nothing short of genocide and this is a war we are losing The artifact is not only a powerful weapon but possibly the rosetta Tone to a lost superscience a superscience that the Fallers may have already decoded Or it may be a doomsday machine that could destroy the very fabric of space. Probability Sun is the second of the probability trilogy by Nancy Kress taking place about three years after the events chronicled in Probability Moon At the end of that book humans had gone from World with the belief that they had been deemed unreal by the natives but as it happens the natives' shared reality has decided that humans are indeed real Another mission is sent to the planet this time to dig up test and possibly remove the buried alien artifact that had been found by the previous team of scientists an artifact that might have great use in the ongoing interstellar war in which humans are engaged But what might that action do to the people of World and do the humans even care Often the middle book in a trilogy serves as a place holder moving some of the action forward but generally not resolving anything but in this trilogy Kress has managed to construct the novels such that one can read each novel independently; that is one does not have to have read Probability Moon to understand the events in Probability Sun although of course it's a richer experience if one has read the earlier book Here we again meet some characters we have already come to know and some new characters are introduced There are occasional info dumps that exactly duplicate passages from the earlier book but with that uibble aside overall this is a very satisfying read; recommended

A seuel in my mind would continue a story that was finished to an appreciable degree but still left overarching themes in a built world up for exploration After reading Probability Sun seuel to the exciting and thought provoking Probability Moon I would say Nancy Kress capably expanded on the fictional universe developed in the original The seuel brought back the right mix of original characters blending them together in a social interplay with new and most importantly deep characters These new players reflected the themes and ethics of Probability Sun with aplomb Kress is fast becoming a new favorite of mine I was only aware of her works in passing whether it be from her exhibit at the Science Fiction museum in Seattle or mentions of her works from other favorites of mine Engorging on the Beggars books and now the Probability seuel has shown me an author who cares to balance elements of science fact alongside character development and the interactions of disparate sociologies It is a balance I care about in my own works for veering too much towards hard sci fi turns many novels into chores while veering too much towards melodrama turns many novels into eye rollers After four of her books I have yet to see Kress suffer from either She’s skilled at distilling people places and crazy new technologies into taut thrillers set in fantastical venuesbackdrops Probability Sun continues that trend effortlessly; somehow Kress is able to compact In retrospect I found Kress developed her male characters deeply than her female Two returning ladies one human and one worlder barely evolved their personas The new main lady was a borderline caricature of a seductress part of a future seductress class But the new men while at face value are a career military man and an eccentric physicist are explored thoroughly By the last page they both uestion stereotypes and defy their expected roles in societyAt times Sun feels very much like a muddled middle chapter in a saga normally does Should we fault authors for slicing a full cake and giving readers a middle with no strawberries I think so Many Part 2s of trilogies especially in the realm of science fiction create slices that can stand alone It behooves authors to focus the scope of each individual novel to in a sense divorce it from fitting into aspects of the end parts That doesn’t detract much from Probability Sun Kress makes a valiant effort to make the middle part of the trilogy stand out steeping it with intrigue personal interplay and high stakes for World and humanity’s intergalactic civilization Cliché to say so but I’ll say it regardless Sun is a page turner It is taut compelling and should make any reader not okay with a ‘might makes right’ mentality feel conflicted Highly recommended especially for newer Kress fans like I

review Probability Sun

Probability SunHe Fallers an alien race bent on nothing short of genocide and this is a war we are losing The artifact is not only a powerful weapon but possibly the rosetta s. An improvement on the previous one although not much Characters still seem too simple but I guess that's to expect on a novel this short Still enjoyable and keen to read the third
