Summary
Ilmatar is an ice-bound planet whose vast sub-surface ocean supports a blind, sentient alien race. Contact with the Ilmatarans is strictly forbidden, due to rules put in place by the six-limbed Sholen, who believe that humanity is too dangerous to be permitted contact with other species. Their concerns are soon justified by the actions of one Earthling, a journalist killed during an illicit attempt to film the Ilmatarans. This incident sets off an inter-galactic diplomatic crisis as well as conflict between human researchers and Sholen regulators. Boasting strong characterizations and extensive, immersive world-building, A Darkling Sea presents a gripping story that also provides a thought-provoking exploration of ethical issues. -- Description by Gillian Speace
