About this title
Venus, second planet from the Sun, is a lonely sphere of lethal heat, deadly pressure, and poisonous winds. Yet mankind still explores it for signs of life. When an abandoned alien outpost is discovered on Venusian soil, Dr. Veronica Hatch is sent to investigate. What she discovers is extraordinary -- an alien race has escaped its dying and distant world to colonize Venus, the only planet that can support it. But back on Earth, this news is received with dread. Fearing the aliens will invade and conquer the entire solar system, Earth prepares for war. It is now up to Veronica to urgently convince the aliens that mankind is truly worth saving -- before Earth becomes ground zero of an interstellar war.Review:
When scientists discover an alien artifact on Venus, intrigues and conflicts proliferate. Dr. Helen Failia struggles to transform her disdained research station into a permanent Venus colony. Dr. Veronica Hatch fights to restore her lost reputation and communicate with the mysterious aliens. An ambitious chemist protects a dark secret by any means necessary. An incognito radical seeks to rekindle Mars's failed rebellion on Venus. The U.N. will do anything to control its space colonies. And the aliens have agendas of their own--not to mention far more advanced and dangerous technologies.
In addition to The Quiet Invasion, Sarah Zettel has written the critically acclaimed SF novels Reclamation (winner of the Locus Award for Best First Novel and a Philip K. Dick Award finalist), Fool's War (a New York Times Notable Book of 1997), and Playing God. --Cynthia Ward END
