The second book details the outcome of the capture of some humans by the Amplitur, who genetically engineer them to become susceptible to the Amplitur telepathic abilities. Weave scientists' attempt to reverse this engineering on the repatriated humans had the unknown to the Amplitur and Weave alike side effect of giving those humans mind-control talents as well.

When the newly returned humans realize their abilities they form a secret society called the Core, whose existence is unknown to even other humans. They fight the war telepathically as well as physically.
The third book, set a few hundred years later, follows the research of a Wais scientist, Lalelelang, studying humans. The Wais are a delicate, highly civilized ornithorp race and are the most averse to violence of all the Weave species. Some members of this race can be shocked into a catatonic state at the mere sight of violence, which makes Lalelelang's friends, family, and colleagues all the more fearful for her chosen subject of study.

During the course of her research she comes to the conclusion that unless humans can be 'civilized' somehow, they will eventually turn on the rest of the Weave races once the war is over. She embarks on a quest to keep this from happening and is joined by one of the descendants of the 'altered' humans from the second book.

Unknown to Lalelelang she will discover shocking things about not only the telepathic humans but a couple of alien species from the first two books as well as herself. Significant parts of the action of the novels take place between the various non-human species that make up both The Weave and the Amplitur's allies, giving an outside perspective of "normal" human interactions and events as the author's apparent commentary on current events.

Plot summary [ edit ] Two major alien civilizations, the Amplitur a squid-like species with telepathic and mind-controlling abilities — which they couch as "suggestions" and The Weave a confederacy of more or less equal species , have been fighting a war for several millennia.

Researching further, she uncovered a secret group of telepathic Humans called the Core, who were on the verge of starting another war, and then eliminating Lalelang.
At the last moment, she was saved by a lone Core commander. He took a chance on her intelligence and compassion, and gambled the fate of Humanity on the possibility that together, they could find an alternative to a galaxy-wide bloodbath This is a classic SF yarn in the old style of bad guy aliens vs.

The twist is that the special human qualities the aliens value are just the same qualities we abhor in ourselves. So while you enjoy the classic battles across the galaxy and interspecies intrigue, you have a very contemporary and critical view of humanity. The style is fluid and clear, the pace is fast and plotting well thought out--very professional.
