Praise for The Engines of God
"Splendid. Not since Arthur C. Clarke's Rendezvous with Rama has the discovery of artifacts of alien intelligence been treated so skillfully."--Baltimore Sun "McDevitt gives us interstellar archeology rendered with mystery, deftly turned ideas, echoing atmosphere, and steady tension. He delivers a compelling tale with a steady hand."--Gregory Benford "McDevitt is at his best award-winning style in this intelligent and wide-ranging novel."--Kirkus Reviews
