Mahala fears the expectation of duty and that she may miss the chance to discover her own destiny. Her world (and the worlds) are being torn apart by a drive for independence from Earth by the Venus colonists and by the rumors of a secret plan developed by the “Habbers,” cybernetically enhanced dwellers of the mobile asteroid “Habitats” who are another, and very different, set of humans no longer tied to Earth. A mysterious call from deep space offers a chance at her dream of her own destiny, along with the terrifying possibility of losing touch with everything she has ever known and loved.
Child of Venus completes the Venus sequence, and Pamela Sargent delivers a dramatically and emotionally satisfying ending to this epic tale of the terraforming of Venus by human colonists as she builds imaginatively detailed new worlds of breathtaking wonder and shows that humanity may travel far but retains all the challenges that come with being human, whatever form their evolution may take.
