Shadows of Eternity Kindle Edition
Shadows of Eternity is legendary author Gregory Benford’s return to interstellar science fiction as a discovery within the SETI library on the moon turns out to be deadly.
Shadows of Eternity is a novel set two centuries from now. Humanity has established a SETI library on the moon to decipher and interpret the many messages from alien societies we have discovered. The most intriguing messages are from complete artificial intelligences.
Ruth, a beginner Librarian, must talk to alien minds—who have aggressive agendas of their own. She opens doors into strangeness beyond imagination—and in her quest for understanding nearly gets killed doing it.
Gregory Benford is one of science fiction’s iconic writers, having been nominated for four Hugo Awards and twelve Nebula Awards. Shadows of Eternity marks Gregory Benford’s return to the sweeping galactic science fiction that readers have been waiting for.

That being said, many of the ideas and scientific concepts are terrific, and I'm glad I read the book for those alone. I'm just sorry most of them were never followed up or through. This is more like the draft of a novel I would like for Peter F. Hamilton to take and flesh out - into the 3 or 5 volumes he would use. There is a terrific story in there somewhere about dangerous alien AI minds and messages. But this book isn't it.
The idea of a seti message library is cool as heck. But I am afraid that's it, and the (spoiler alert!) whole premise that a real alien shows up is interesting but on three end, unconvincing. Finally, the book shark-jumped in the final pages when we get into some bird on girl sex. Please. Maybe it's time to stop swriting, Gregory.
