Legacy (The Way #3) - Greg Bear7.66

The Way is a tunnel through space and time. The entrance is through the hollow asteroid Thistledown and the space station Axis City that sits at the asteroid's center. From there the Flawships ride the center of the Way, traveling to other worlds and times.

Now the rulers of Axis City have discovered that a huge group of colonists has secretly entered one of the interdicted worlds along the Way. In some ways Lamarkia is very Earth-like - but its biology is extraordinary. A single genetic entity can take many forms, and span a continent. There are only a few of these "ecos" on Lamarkia, and the effect of human interaction on them is unknown.

Olmy Ap Sennon has been sent to secretly assess the extent of the damage. But he will find far more than an intriguing alien biology - for on their new world the secret colonists have returned to the old ways of human history: war, famine, and ecological disaster. On this mission, Olmy will learn about the basics: love, responsibility, and even failure...

The Way :: Series

The Stone was from space - but perhaps not our space. It came from the future - but perhaps not our future. And within the hollowed asteroid was the remains of a vanished civilization. A human civilization. One that tells the history of the Death - incredible catastrophes - just about to occur on Earth.

But in this science fiction series from bestselling author Greg Bear, that\'s only the beginning. The Stone will yield a secret that makes even Earth\'s survival pale in comparison.
