The Forge of God - Greg Bear

We're dead, Jim.

Alien discoveries begin to be made, and it is not at all good. It seems that there is a race that likes to destroy planets, and they have picked good old Terra as a target.

Needless to say, this does not go down well and the usual variety of craziness, despiar and desperation is entered into.

The twist is that anothr bunch of not-from-earthers turn up to offer some small solace.

Pretty good, but not a happy book, certainly.

3.5 out of 5
