Fourth book in this series finds well-known physicist Eloise Bright drawn into an effort to move Earth to a higher plane of existence. The team of aliens from the Deovolante Galaxy is at work on the Rising, and Eloise discovers technology she never dreamed of. While contending with her attraction to the alien Mur Ray, Eloise finds herself caught between her scientist colleagues and the world of another galaxy. Add to this the staunch resistance to the Rising from Earth herself. Written by Marjorie Thelen.
