From Publishers Weekly:

Centuries ago the Gene Wars destroyed much of the earth, and now a blight is ruining the little fertile land left. The village of Minerva must pay a yearly tribute in grain to the Sky Lord Pangloth , a mile-long airship, but the crop yield falls too low. Threatened with destruction by Pangloth , the villagers rebel but are beaten; the sole survivor, Jan Dorvin, daughter of the Headwoman, is taken on the airship as a slave. Thus begin the jeopardies of Jan, as she is moved from one danger to another, always rescued by a convenient, if not necessarily pleasant savior who is summarily removed before he can interfere with the next cliffhanger. Brosnan ( Future Tense: The Cinema of Science Fiction ) fails to sustain tension in his plot and to evoke interest in its two-dimensional characters.

From Library Journal:

When the Minervan rebellion against the Sky Lords fails, a young woman warrior surrenders herself to a life of slavery aboard the huge airships that hold a devastated earth in thrall. Her sacred charge: to destroy the power-hungry tyrants from within. Brosnan excels in the creation of vivid backgrounds and believable characters. Despite a somewhat forced conclusion, this space opera is recommended for large sf collections.
