Abstract:

"A single yellow rose summons Jedrek nor Talin back to Old Earth. A decade ago, he served the Terran Grand Library as one of the guardians of humanity's collected knowledge. Now the last librarian has called together the members of Jedrek's broken work circle to protect the library from its greatest threat. Four millennia after the Terran Empire fell, the Galaxy's communications system is breaking down. Jedrek and his coworkers set off into deep space to repair ancient imperial equipment. But they aren't the only ones ... for the warring remnants of the old empire have also dispatched ships on the same mission. Suddenly, a peaceful settlement becomes ground zero in a clash of Galactic culture--and a bare handful of librarians are all that stand between the Galaxy and disastrous interstellar war"--Page 4 of cover.
