Typhon's Childrenby Toni Anzetti
To the new colonists, the teeming, ocean-dominated planet of Typhon seems a wondrous and exotic paradise--until the land erupts with incomprehensible violence, consuming the colony in a fiery hell. Their supplies lost, the survivors find themselves struggling against a world where death wears many guises. But the deadliest menace strikes from within--for every child born on Typhon suffers strange, degenerative mutations. Unless the situation can be reversed, the Typhon colony is doomed.
Per Langstaff is a scientist obsessed with the life-and-death mystery, certain that the answer to the colony's survival lies with the virulent planet itself. His staunchest ally, Dilani, is a rebellious young girl born deaf to sound and convention, an orphan as unruly as the oceans themselves. Together these two outcasts, bound by a shared love of the depths, embark on an unforgettable journey that will take them to the utmost reaches of humanity . . . and beyond.

Meet the Author
Toni Anzetti's interest in biology began at age three, when she collected a large bucket of assorted amphibians and turned them loose in the tent where she was living with her parents and younger brother. In a later experiment, she and her brother tried to raise tadpoles but instead created a jar filled with methane-producing bacteria. While her brother subsequently became a professional biologist, Toni followed the less orthodox path of the science fiction writer.
She's camped in the Badlands, ridden the trails of Huron National Forest, and swum in all of the Great Lakes. Her interest in the Deep has taken her snorkeling in Saipan, between the Mariana Trench and the volcanic island of Pagan. With her husband and the youngest of their four children, she currently lives in Texas, where she studies xericulture and the region's native plants.
