About this title

Synopsis:

Voyaging aboard the Goldenwing starship toward an enemy star system, Glory and her crew struggle to avoid capture while preparing to face a greater menace that threatens all interstellar human life

From School Library Journal:

YA?A sequel to Glory (TOR, 1993), this sprawling space drama is actually better than the first book. The plot is stronger and the characters are more fleshed out. It also stands on its own merit. It was the goldenwings that brought the remaining humans to colonize other planets in the last days of the Islamic/Christian Holy War (jihad) that was destroying the Earth. That was thousands of years ago. Now there is only Glory. The crew is wired into the computer that runs it and, in essence, is tapped into Glory's mind. It carries supplies ordered long ago and is about to land on a planet that has been warring with another for eons. Each side sets out to capture the ship and commandeer the supplies. While orbiting one of the planets, the crew discovers that there is an entity out in space (no shape, no structure) that feeds on human emotions. In fighting off this force, Glory and her crew become one and ancient self-defense mechanisms are activited to protect her. The battle first between the planets and then between Glory and her crew against the entity make for an action-packed story with a crackerjack ending.?Susan B.
