Overview

It’s 2075 in a post-climate change, post-pandemic, post-peak oil world. Professor Radicand Jones has earned a nice quiet sabbatical in her sister’s solar powered airship, floating serenely above it all.

Instead, Radicand finds herself:

Defending the airship flock against pirates with nothing but her rifle and her wits.

Risking her mind every time she goes deeper into the enhanced virtual reality of the aether—just like her father before her.

Helping her best friend escape from bounty hunters determined to keep her genetic property under corporate control.

Falling in love with a killer. He has a heart of gold. It might belong to someone else.

Happy endings may look easy in the sky, but can Radicand Jones save everyone else’s hearts and minds without losing her own?

This is a rollicking good read--I couldn't put it down. It's dystopic without being miserable and actually has a great sense of humor. She writes characters you want to read more about. Please write a sequel!

This is a very enjoyable book. That may seem surprising, given that several plot points involve a plague, human slavery by another name, and a country dominated by evil corporations, all in a world radically reshaped by global warming. But it's also written with humor and humanity, focused on the ways it is possible to build a life around positive change, even in the midst of hardship and injustice. If you are looking for a cheerful, progressive, semi-steampunk scifi novel with a diverse cast of characters, this one could be for you.
