The first of the Babylon 5 books to be considered canon, it covers the back story of John & Anna Sheridan and the mysterious Mr. Morden. It fits in perfectly with the tone of the original TV series, and fleshes out two of the more obscure characters.

One of the best stand-alone B5 novels, it acts as prequel to 'The Passing of the Techno-mages' trilogy also written by Jeanne Cavelos.

Highly recommended to B5 fans! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440223482, Paperback)

Anna Sheridan has two passions--her husband, John, and the mystery surrounding some intriguing artifacts found during a mission to a distant planet called Z'Ha'dum. Now she gets orders to become the science officer on the follow-up mission scheduled for the spaceship Icarus. Happy, young, beloved, and brilliant, never has a woman had so much to live for. Or so much to lose. While John, recently promoted to the rank of captain, struggles with his new command on the Agamemnon, Anna begins to assemble her science crew...and makes a first mistake. She signs on Dr. Morden, a highly credentialed translator whose heart hides a weakness that can cost Anna her life or her soul. Her second mistake is to underestimate the danger of Z'Ha'dum. What is awaiting the Icarus near the rim of known destiny...and a dark future that can crush her husband's dreams and a terror that can come back to haunt us all.
