After thousands of years searching, humans stand on the verge of first contact with an alien race. Two human groups: the Qeng Ho, a culture of free traders, and the Emergents, a ruthless society based on the technological enslavement of minds.The group that opens trade with the aliens will reap unimaginable riches. But first, both groups must wait at the aliens' very doorstep for their strange star to relight and for their planet to reawaken, as it does every two hundred and fifty years. Then, following terrible treachery, the Qeng Ho must fight for their freedom and for the lives of the unsuspecting innocents on the planet below, while the aliens themselves play a role unsuspected by the Qeng Ho and Emergents alike.

A great story that follows a doomed joint expedition of the Chang-ho and Emergent (both human space civilizations) to a solar system that may host an undiscovered alien race. The switching of points of view from human to the alien spiders might seem to drag the story out but it is both critical to the overall tale and also breaks up would could have been a monotonous tale of a space fairing civilization coming back from near extinction. The reader of the story was good and I believe did justice when voicing both male and female characters.
