The project--the terraforming of Venus--was begun centuries ago. And generations more will come and go before the planet's surface has been fully habitable.
There are those, however, whose patience has grown dangerously thin.
Mahala Liangharad is a true Child of Venus--conceived from the genetic material of the cult leaders who brought chaos and horror to this planet in transition. To some, she should never have been born; others see her as the future. Now catastrophe looms once more, and it is she who must ensure that there is a future for her flawed, star-travelling kind...even if her great destiny tears her brutally away from everything she has ever known and loved.
