Excellent Sequel Book!

Sawyer does an excellent job following up on Hominids, which was such a good book it didn't really need a sequel. This book focuses on Mary and Ponter and their blossoming relationship. (note: already knowing that the next book is called Hybrids, you can guess that the two species have to mix). Ponter convinces his world council to re-open the portal to the Glikson (human) universe for the purpose of establishing trade. Ponter's says that is important that the two races need to establish trade but you suspect it is because Ponter misses a certain Glikson female.

Ponter comes back to the Glikson world with a diplomat. After someone takes a shot at Ponter, you suspect that it was a bad idea for the Hominids to leave their safe environment and risk having it tainted by the dangerous Glikson side.

Eventually, Ponter meets up with Mary again and as they are ultimately drawn together, Ponter needs to return for the mating of his daughter. Ponter invites Mary along so we finally see the Hominid world through Glikson eyes.

Sawyer has created a marvelous universe and I highly look forward to the third book in this trilogy!
