Seeds of Earth, a truly fantastic novel. Science Fiction at it's prime, the story an intertwining web of space politics, centered around the long lost human colonies sent into dark space in humanities last hour.  A tiresome read at times, but I have found that most of my favourites tend to be so, and I have nothing but compliments to give this book.  I must warn however, if you are looking for a simpler Sci-Fi read, this is not it.  This is for all the die hards out there, a feast for all fans of Frank Herbert and Orson Scott Card.

Pages: 628

The first intelligent species to encounter mankind attacked without warning. Merciless. Relentless. Unstoppable. With little hope of halting the invasion, Earth’s last roll of the dice was to dispatch three colony ships, seeds of Earth, to different parts of the galaxy. The human race would live on … somewhere.

150 years later, the planet Darien hosts a thriving human settlement, which enjoys a peaceful relationship with an indigenous race, the scholarly Uvovo. But there are secrets buried on Darien’s forest moon. Secrets that go back to an apocalyptic battle fought between ancient races at the dawn of galactic civilisation. Unknown to its colonists Darien is about to become the focus of an intergalactic power struggle, where the true stakes are beyond their comprehension. And what choices will the Uvovo make when their true nature is revealed and the skies grow dark with the enemy?
