You have learned and heard the story of Atrus and Ti'anna. You will learn more about the legend as you read The Book of the D'ni.

It has been many years since the destruction of the D'ni culture. Not much is left. Save for a few small groups of individuals, the D'ni are extinct. Atrus, son of Gehn, and Cathrine, wife of Atrus, and the rest of the remaining groups have plans to rebuild the great D'ni culture. But before they can resurrect the D'ni, they need to find enough of it's remains.

To do this, they venture through the remaing ages created by the D'ni. Lifting a fallen empire is not easy. It takes alot of work. While this search is taking place, they stumble upon a fascinating world. A world populated with two million citizens. It is Terahnee. A beautiful and perfect world it is. The world makes the D'ni Empire look like nothing, even at it's peak.

Now, Cathrine and Atrus wish to bridge the gap between the D'ni and this new civilization. But a disease is spreading among the Relyimah, the Terahnee, and the P'aarli, all citizens of Terahnee. The disease is harmless to the D'ni because thay have been exposed to it for many years. But to the Terahnee people... it is harmful. It is a stomach bacteria, and now, the fate of millions is at stake...

More problems occur, but I will not give them away.

This book was good, but not as good as I thought it would be. But good nevertheless. The thing about the stomach bacteria, I thought, was a little far fetched. And there was a longer dull spot in the beginning of the book that was not that promising, but picked up after that. The planet of Terahnee was interesting too. Thus I give this book a rating of 4.
