A great interstellar migration has begun, down the grand, ethereal highway known as the starstream--from the remnant of the Betelgeuse supernova to the center of the Milky Way. Who could have predicted the wonders of the starstream, or the perils it would unleash--including the Throgs, shadowy beings of n-space that seem to understand only death and destruction? But life goes on, dangers or no, and colonists pour down the starstream seeking new worlds. Aboard starship Charity are many such colonists, including one Claudi Melnik, a child of uncommon talents--and an AI named Jeaves, with purposes of his own. When the unthinkable occurs, Claudi must face alone the challenge of the Throgs. And no one, not even Jeaves, could have predicted the final confrontation--or imagined where unexpected allies would be found.

Triumphant sequel to the bestselling From a Changeling Star, Down the Stream of Stars is a daring journey across the gulf between human and alien, to the heart of consciousness itself.

Named one of the best science fiction novels of the year by Science Fiction Chronicle. DRM-free ebook edition. Original print publication by Bantam Spectra.


"It was no surprise that...Jeffrey Carver's Down the Stream of Stars would have heavy emphasis on science as well as good writing...." --Don D'Ammassa, in Science Fiction Chronicle

"Carver's ingenuity is everywhere apparent." --Locus

"I enjoyed it immensely. Carver provides another wild ride through a deranged cosmos. His imagination is matched only by his compassion. Marvelous effort!" --Jack McDevitt, author of Seeker and Chindi.

Although it is a sequel, if you didn't know that, it would not be obvious. I personally long for the days of a solid, well written novel by someone not afflicted with Robert Jordan syndrome. Jeffrey Carver has written a satsfying novel in lieu of an encyclopedia. I enjoyed the characters development, plot and moral debate without moralizing. I have several of his novels and will add to the collection. Read it y'all!

Pads in and laps up some water. The stream gurgles gently. "Hmm... Beautiful."

Pineshade reached out with her mind, feeling for the fishes' souls. She could feel many of them, and she drew them toward her. A swarm of fish jumped out of the water, and Pineshade nimbly killed them all. Her eyes turned gold, and she opened her mouth, drawing the fishes' souls into her. Streams of black flew out of the fish and into Pineshade's mouth.
