Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

The long-awaited, intricate sequel to Cherryh's Hugo-winning Cyteen(1989) brings events full circle. Brilliant 18-year-old scientist Ariane Emory, a clone, resumes the work of her original: psychogenesis, the cloning of psychology and memory. Fellow clone Justin Warrick tutors "second Ariane," but when Justin's exiled original, Jordan, returns to Cyteen's research city of Reseune, he stirs up trouble and questions about who really killed first Ariane and why the clones of the participants in Cyteen's original power struggle seem to be reprising the roles of their predecessors. Plots and subplots revolve around second Ariane as she desperately attempts to unravel the motivations of players alive and dead. Complex and rich, with beautifully rounded characters, this novel can stand alone, but will delight fans of Cyteen with extra layers of meaning that resonate between old and new. (Jan.)

Library Journal

As one of humanity's most talented scientists, Ariane Emory was critical in the movement against the continued terraforming of the human-colonized planet Cyteen. Now, her clone, or Personal Replicate, Ariane Emory PR, possesses full citizenship rights and all the perks that were once her "mother's"-and she must discover who was responsible for her original's death before she suffers the same fate. Set against the richly developed future involving political, social, and sometimes military battles between the Union and Alliance interstellar organizations, this latest novel by the author of the Alliance-Union Universe novels serves as a sequel to both Cyteen and Downbelow Station. Cherryh's storytelling talent remains unmatched for its clearness of execution and its exceptional readability. Most libraries will want this volume for their sf collections. Highly recommended.
