The Rosetta Mind (Book Two of the Rosetta Series)

Estlin Hume wakes to find himself surrounded by aliens, soldiers, scientists, spies, bureaucrats and a horde of affectionate squirrels. Thatís nothing new. But now thereís a giant saltwater tank full of cuttlefish suspended above his house! WTF.

Estlinís unique ability to translate for a pair of newly arrived aliens has brought the first contact crisis to his doorstep in rural Alberta. Unfortunately, the aliens have silently climbed the nearest tree, leaving him to contend with the cuttlefish, as well as ill-advised directives from government and military officials, and random acts of violence from unknown nefarious agentsóall of whom are determined to find out for themselves what the aliens really want. No matter the cost!

Reviews:

"The novel is packed with so much speculative science, from so many different disciplines, that I finished stunned it was written by one person. McCague is Asimov-like in her command of so many different branches of knowledge, combined with an artistís sense of timing and story. Only sheís a bit funnier than Isaac, which helps when you think the world is going to end." -- Michael J. Martineck (READ FULL REVIEW)

"I read it all in a single sitting. The science and the characters combine into another superb novel." -- Bill Garthright

"I wasnít sure if the sequel would ruin the original for me but thankfully itís just as delightful. Will definitely be rereading." -- Nina Grava

"The first book in this series was curious but this second one is inspiring and seriously thought provoking. It is unlike any other sci-fi book Iíve read in a really good way, challenging our thinking and perspective." -- HeadphoneReviewer121, amazon
