Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As the meteoric rise of the Cult of Ishtar casts an ominous shadow over the divided factions dedicated to the terraforming of Venus's surface, the descendants of martyred heroine Iris Angharads find themselves torn by their own conflicting loyalties. Continuing the story begun in Venus of Dreams , this multigenerational saga explores the social drama of planetary colonization and its implications for humankind. Recommended. JC
