Worlds closer to the galatic core than Known Space are --or were-- home to intelligent speciers.  Some learned of the core explosion in time to flee.  Destroyer of Worlds  opens in 2670, ten years after  Juggler of Worlds  closes; with refugee species fleeing in an armada of ramscoops in the direction of the  Fleet of Worlds .  The onrushing aliens are recognized as a threat; they have left in their trail a host of desolated worlds: some raided for supplies, some attacked to eliminate competition, and some for pure xenophobia. 

Only the Puppeteers might have the resources to confront this threat--but the Puppeteers are philosophical cowards... they don't confront anyone.  They need sepoys to investigate the situation and take action for them.  The source of the sepoys?  Their newly independent former slave world, New Terra.

This was a highly enjoyable book. Fairly fast paced, good characters, and, with the Pak, a good page turner! If you enjoyed any of the Ringworld series (this seems better written) or the Fleet of Worlds series then you will enjoy this book.

Competent work from Niven and Lerner with their attention to detail in physics and plotting. Much of the book involves interactions with a Protector and they are well done. The characters have a little more life to them which I attribute to Edward Lerner.
A good read, not a great read.
