I must admit, I'm pretty biased in my liking for the Sime~Gen novels. I did really enjoy seeing a book set in a more modern era. I particularly enjoyed hearing about the politics, and thought Shanlun, her boyfriend was a cutie. Unfortunately, a lot of the excitement occurs outside the lab, as it is Shanlun, and Mairis and Yuan (the rebel leader), who are outside dealing with several crisis. Laneff spends a great deal of time in the lab, assisted by her Gen donor, Jarmi.
I was pleased to see the Diet had mellowed some since Digen's experience in Unto Zeor. They seem to have divested themselves of the Social Darwinism, (survival of the fittest), in the manner in which they deal with channels and allow for a choice rather than advocating strict Sime~Gen transfer.
Just general thoughts: While I enjoyed this story, it felt a bit short to me, and there were a lot of things that seemed a trifle too neat, or unfinished or not fleshed out enough. There is a love triangle going on between Shanlun/Mairis/Yuan which seemed a touch weak. Then there is the political situation between Mairis/Yuan which was interesting to see Keon/Farris working together, and Miss Laneff's solution to use herself as a human test subject, which all seemed a bit rushed. I also do not see how the Distect lifestyle is better than the Tecton, lifestyle, as it seems like in both groups people who are at the high end of the spectrum (such as Yuan and Laneff), are not getting their needs met in the Distect lifestyle. I was also really suprised that no one read Miss Laneff the riot act for using herself and the baby as a human test subject.
This was an enjoyable read, but it really needs a sequel. So much going on between Mairis's ploy for political power and Yuan's need for a channel, and more about Shanlun and Miss Laneff and the outcome of being able to discern the Sime~Gen mutation in utero.
