The Singers of Time - Frederik Pohl, Jack Williamson

What price paradise?

The humans called them "Turtles," members of a superior alien race that arrived to conquer Earth. But the conquest was through commerce and trade, the rule benevolent, and the result a time of plenty and tranquility never before seen... as long as the humans stayed in their place. Then; catastrophe. The Mother, the female progenitor of all living Turtles, vanishes.

With no other choice, the Turtles turn to humans for help - to their science, which the aliens have banned as blasphemous - and to a man named Krake, the only human qualified to pilot a Turtle waveship. His quest will unlock the secrets of the universe and beyond in an incredible journey through dimensions of time and space that dreamers had imagined, that poets had foretold.

From two acclaimed masters of speculative science fiction writing comes a bold, futuristic adventure to the end of the universe and to the beginning of existence itself.
