In a far future, the Benevolent Satrapy, a coalition of alien races, rules over 48 worlds, restricting the freedom and movement of humans under their control. Only the Ragamuffins, descendants of Earth's island population who have turned to smuggling and piracy, retain any freedom-and the satraps have marked them for extermination. The fate of humanity lies with a woman called Nashara, who is part machine and part flesh-a walking doomsday weapon. Only the Ragamuffins can help Nashara and prevent her from destroying the universe she is trying to save. Part of the Sci Fi Channel's "Essential Book" series, the follow-up to Buckell's Crystal Rainestablishes the author as a signature voice of Afro-Caribbean speculative fiction. Fans of Nalo Hopkinson should enjoy this colorful and vibrant tale of the "good fight."
