A Darkling Sea

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

On the planet Ilmatar, under a roof of ice a kilometer thick, a team of deep-sea diving scientists investigates the blind alien race that lives below. The Terran explorers have made an uneasy truce with the Sholen, their first extraterrestrial contact: so long as they don't disturb the Ilmataran habitat, they're free to conduct their missions in peace.

But when Henri Kerlerec, media personality and reckless adventurer, ends up sliced open by curious Ilmatarans, tensions between Terran and Sholen erupt, leading to a diplomatic disaster that threatens to escalate to war.

Against the backdrop of deep-sea guerrilla conflict, a new age of human exploration begins as alien cultures collide. Both sides seek the aid of the newly enlightened Ilmatarans. But what this struggle means for the natives—and the future of human exploration—is anything but certain, in A Darkling Sea by James Cambias.

Customer Reviews

First-rate, gripping. Hugo-worthy.

James Cambias ruined my plans: UPS delivered "A Darkling Sea" two hours ago and I cannot put it down. The story leaps and does not stop; one quickly becomes attached to characters regardless of species. This interim review is short because I *must* return to that world to discover how this puzzle ends (though I wish it wouldn't end). As for endings, I suspect this masterful first novel is the thin edge of the wedge of a new literary universe to which millions will devote countless hours. Kudos!
