The Probability Trilogy

Author: Nancy Kress
Genres:
Publisher: Tor Books

Humankind has expanded out into interstellar space using star gates-technological remnants left behind by an ancient, long-vanished race. But the technology comes with a price. Among the stars, humanity encountered the Fallers, a strange alien race bent on nothing short of genocide. It’s all-out war, and humanity is losing.

In this fragile situation, a new planet is discovered, inhabited by a pre-industrial race who experience “shared reality”—they’re literally compelled to share the same worldview. A team of human scientists is dispatched—but what they don’t know is that their mission of first contact is actually a covert military operation. For one of the planet’s moons is really a huge mysterious artifact of the same origin as the star gates…and it just may be the key to winning the war.

Salvation or Annihilation?

A strange artifact has been discovered on a distant planet, an artifact that may be the key to humanity’s salvation. For we at war with the Fallers, an alien race bent on nothing short of genocide, and this is a war we are losing. The artifact is not only a powerful weapon, but possibly the rosetta stone to a lost superscience…a superscience that the Fallers may have already decoded. Or it may be a doomsday machine that could destroy the very fabric of space.

Probability Space: Book 3 of The Probability Trilogy

Nancy Kress

In Probability Space, humanity’s war with the alien Fallers continues, and it is a war we are losing. Our implacable foes ignore all attempts at communication, and they take no prisoners. Our only hope lies with an unlikely coalition: Major Lyle Kaufman, retired warrior; Marbet Grant, the Sensitive who’s involved with Kaufman; Amanda, a very confused fourteen-year-old girl; and Magdalena, one of the biggest power brokers in all of human space.

As the action moves from Earth to Mars to the farthest reaches of known space, with civil unrest back home and alien war in deep space, four humans—armed with little more than an unproven theory—try to enter the Fallers’ home star system. It’s a desperate gamble and the fate of the entire universe may hang in the balance.
