Shadows of Eternity

Gregory Benford
Shadows of Eternity is legendary author Gregory Benford’s return to interstellar science fiction as a discovery within the SETI library on the moon turns out to be deadly.

Two centuries from now: Humanity has established a SETI library on the moon to decipher the many messages that have been discovered originating from alien societies. The most intriguing messages are from beings of complete artificial intelligence, like one of the Library's rare and indecipherable messages from what is known as the Sagittarious Architecture. Those working within the secretive hierarchy of the Library decide to partner with the Ythri, an avian-like species, to search for a hidden wormhole inside our solar system, a compromise for all involved who are seeking to piece together information scattered throughout the Library's archives.

Rachel, a beginner Librarian, is tasked with talkin to alien minds—who have aggressive self-interested agendas of their own, and who also view their discussions with Rachel as entertainment. These conversations will open doors into strangeness beyond imagination—and catapult Rachel into life-threatening danger in her quest for understanding.
