Sinopsis:

Alvin of Loronei escapes Diaspar, the last living city on Earth, to seek his destiny by revitalizing humankind and by salvaging Earth from stagnation

From Publishers Weekly:

One of Clarke's early novels, Against the Fall of Night , has long been recognized as among his very best; the tale of a young man's need to escape from the limits of the last cities on Earth, it combines the author's scientific know-how with his yen for mysticism and metaphysics. This new book unites the first volume with a sequel penned by noted scientist Benford ( Timescape ), whose work has often been compared to Clarke's. Benford's story takes place many years later: Earth is now under siege by the "Mad Mind," a being of pure mentality created by a much earlier galactic Empire. Cley, last of the seemingly primitive "Ur-humans," initially refuses to help Alvin, Clarke's hero, in battle. But she begins to view her role differently with the aid of Seeker, a furry "raccoon-creature" whose species avows "a respect for evolution and one's place in it." Although Benford's unflagging inventiveness will both delight and outrage fans of the original work, ultimately the sequel proves a let-down. Benford seems hindered by having to emulate Clarke's simpler and less contemporary style, and ends up using a number of tangential events to explore his own scientific concerns.
