This book should never have worked but it did. This is one of those silly ideas that writers have that should be kept away in a bottom drawer and never see the light of day, dogs, bears, alligators or iguanas and bees as bio-weapons seems such a silly idea, worthy of Terry Pratchett but here it works. Suspend your disbelief. Honey, Rex and Bees are as real as you and me. I found Mr Tchaikovsky with "Children of Time" which I thought a good idea but lacking astronomical depth. Lol- sci-fi buff me, but here he won, converted me. This is a great book easily read with just a hint of the difficult to appeal to the hard sci-fi buffs. I am going to buy more of Mr Tchaikovsky's works.
