To Sleep in a Sea of Stars by Christopher Paolini

Paolini—best known for his fantasy series that began with Eragon—steps into the world of adult sci-fi with this tense story of an alien encounter. When Kira discovers an alien artifact on a planet being prepped for colonization, protocol demands that everyone aware of the artifact be temporarily cut off, so the aliens cannot trace signals back to humanity’s home worlds. A good plan in theory… but the reality gets far more complicated. And bloody. Paolini does an excellent job of heightening the tension with each page, even as he gives the reader some mental breathing space with moments of humor. —Adrian Liang
