Synopsis: Aiah worked for the Plasm Authority, metering the shimmering substance that powered the world-city, until she fell in love with Constantine, the rebel Metropolitan fighting a war to overthrow the corrupt dynasty of the Keremaths.

Now the war is over, and Aiah is at the mercy of Constantine, the tyrant she created. As sexually irresistible as ever, the former rebel has a new job for Aiah: track down the outlaw plasm divers of Caraqui and recruit them to help destroy the Silver Hand, a murderous remnant of the old kleptocracy. A reluctant Aiah finds herself working with a horrifying ally -- the "hanged man," Taikoen, a once-human monster that lives in the plasm well, leaving it only to kill. But for Aiah, there can be no turning back. Constantine's war against the Handmen will put Aiah in touch with her lost Barkazil heritage. And it may allow her to get a glimpse of heaven itself, and to discover what waits beyond the Shield.

Review: In the Nebula-nominated Metropolitan, Aiah and Constantine won the war for their world-city, Caraqui, by overthrowing the corrupt Keremaths. Their ace-in-the-hole was an unlimited supply of plasm, the geomantic substance that gives the world its power. Now Constantine has paired Aiah with their dangerous "ally," the hanged man Taikoen who lives in the plasm. For Constantine needs help to defeat the Silver Hand and protect his New Regime, no matter how much it will cost Aiah. In the process Aiah may finally reach beyond the Shield, an impenetrable barrier created by the Ascended Ones that seals Caraqui from the stars.
