Greg Bear writes well, the story keeps moving and is an enjoyable read.
A Prequel to Eon; food on its own account, but not of the scope of EON.
A very interesting read, just don't do what I did. Read Eon & Eternity first, and then go back and read Legacy, or else you'll be hopelessly lost for a while.
A group against technology escape to an unstudied world. One man is sent to discover the amount of contamination this group has done the the natural habitat and to return with a stolen device. He finds himself pulled into a world very different from the one he left. He finds out who he is, how to love, and much more.

This is the prequel to "Eon".
prequel to Bear's Eon (1987) and Eternity (1988)
I have never been disappointed with any Greg Bear writings - well, maybe Darwin's radio. However, this is a great follow-up to his work entitled 'Eon.' Hard-core science fiction at its best. Hard to find a similiar writer like Greg Bear.
