The Quintaglio Ascension is my favorite of Rob Sawyers works...by a wide margin. This is the middle volume in a tale that spans an age of enlightenment for a saurian race on a world coming apart at the seems. It's got a bit of James Hogan's "Inherit the Stars" and a cast of great characters coming to grips with their origins and the universe itself. I only wish he'd come up with a fourth book.
