sequel to Mote in God's Eye, The

Long awaited sequel to Mote. It was well worth the wait. It was published in the U.S. under the title The Gripping Hand, which in the British publication is the title of the first chapter which essentially stands alone as a separate story. The sequel brings back many of the characters from the Mote, when it appears the Moties have escaped from their isolated home system, putting the entire human empire in extreme danger. If you enjoyed Mote, you need to read this book!
