When humans colonized the planet Quaere, some four hundred years ago, they had only the vaguest notion of how important the deserted alien artifact—known as the Noachian Harp—would be.
Important… and dangerous.
Torcal Mekamet finds himself caught up in the danger and the intrigue surrounding a newly discovered inscription, when all he really wants is to sink into the blissful oblivion the Harp offers. If he can ignore the seduction of Harpsong, he may be able to prevent certain secrets falling into the wrong hands. But will the addiction to the Song prove too powerful to resist…?
Captives of the Song is the first book in the Silver Sands Trilogy.

I really enjoyed this book - it is well written and well edited. The plot is complex and fast-paced, with good character development. It ends on a total cliff-hanger, so can't wait for the next one in the series.

This story takes place after the short story "Something Other Than Human". I'm always looking for new worlds to enjoy, and I enjoyed this one. The storyline interleaves between several POVs, which gives different perspectives to ongoing events. It is a fairly quick, entertaining read.
