Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Told in eight long, first-person accounts, the sequel to The Silver Ship and the Sea (2007) is set two-and-a-half years later and is just as gripping. Genetically changed Chelo, who with fellow “adapted” Liam and Kayleen has remained on the planet Fremont to live among the few thousand original humans who had defeated the invading altered humans earlier, narrates the first segment. The trio of Chelo’s brother Joseph, his sweetheart Alicia, and their friend Bryan as well as the enigmatic Jenna have left on a spaceship. Although the three on Fremont have been adopted and befriended by many of the “true humans,” most fear and despise the trio because of their augmentations. Joseph, a wind reader with the ability to interact directly with data and who pilots the starship mentally rather than manually, relates alternating segments, which follow the trials of trying to adjust to life on a very complex planet, where everyone has augmentations. He manages to find his father, who had left with the defeated altered after the battle for Fremont, and learns that the bellicose Star Mercenaries have been hired to wipe out all human life on Fremont, which would include his sister and other friends. The distinctive characterizations remain complex, internally and in interrelationships, and Cooper’s depictions of both worlds are exceptional. A welcome follow-up. --Sally Estes --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

"Distinctive characterizations, well-limned interrelationships, and the vivdly realized Fremont contribute to an exciting coming-of-age story with a strong message about the evils of prejudice. . . YAs are sure to relate to the travails and exploits of these extraordinary young people."--Booklist on The Silver Ship and the Sea (starred review)
 
"Fast-paced and full-bodied, The Silver Ship and the Sea is character-driven hard SF at its best."--The Seattle Times
 
"Cooper's...first solo effort combines the feel of classic sf adventure with strong, character-driven storytelling and lays the foundation for other tales set in her brave new world..suitable for both adult and YA sf collections."--Library Journal on The Silver Ship and the Sea
 
"Good plot, with some nice touches...Characterizations were particularly well done."--Locus and The Silver Ship and the Sea
