The biggest issue I have with this book is that in spite of some interesting possibilities (aliens on Eden! Aliens on Riverwalk! The Maze! A space station outside our galaxy! Louie!) there really isn't much of a plot and then the book just ends. Some things like Louie or the Maze are never explained so we know nothing about them when the book ends. When it looks like some progress may be achieved, like on Eden, the book ends before any real climax or resolution.

Excellent sequel to McDevitt's 1996 Ancient Shores. This time more time is used to explore stargate, and the worlds that it opens up to, particularly Eden, which the Native Americans seem to want to colonize, despite evidence of sentient life already living there.

Good story line about gates to other places and times, and the end was unpredictable. Looking forward to the next McDevitt book - and you have to wonder what the little whirlwinds will do next.
