Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Cooper's first solo flight into SF (after Building Harlequin's Moon, with Larry Niven) doesn't quite get off the deadly colony planet Fremont, where 12 years earlier war raged between the original pure-human settlers and the "altered" (bioengineered) second wave of colonists. Adolescent heroine Chelo Lee, orphaned by that war and adopted by the leader-couple of the planet's only city, Artistos, leads the other five living altered youths to the silver spaceship New Making that had brought their parents to Fremont. With the help of Jenna, the only surviving altered adult, Chelo dreams of freeing herself and the other altereds from the paranoid subjugation of the Fremontians, who both fear and need the youngsters' gifts. The lack of psychological development in this sluggish and predictable growing-up excursion may limit its appeal to preteen readers. (Mar.)

From Booklist

*Starred Review* The first solo novel by Larry Niven's Building Harlequin's Moon (2005) coauthor portrays the thoroughly convincing human colonial society on Fremont, a dangerous planet rife with vicious predators, frequent earthquakes, and falling meteors. Two hundred years after the first colonists--who claimed to be true humanity, having refused genetic augmentation to improve physically and adaptatively--arrived, two space ships bearing altered people landed, and the inevitable happened: a 10-year war. The "true" humans prevailed, and the few surviving altered escaped into space, leaving behind altered Jenna and six children, all teenagers when the story opens, who have been adopted into families and whose unique talents most of the populace fear. These so-called altered and their talents are vital, however, to the colony's survival. Chelo Lee, her brother Joseph, and the other young altered must learn to use their skills. Their only mentoring comes from Jenna, who lives in the wilds, otherwise showing up sporadically to issue cryptic statements. Matters come to a head when one teen altered is falsely accused of murder and all must take a stand or somehow leave Fremont on the locked spaceship sitting on the grass plain outside the planet's one town. Distinctive characterizations, well-limned interrelationships, and the vividly realized Fremont contribute to an exciting coming-of-age story with a strong message about the evils of prejudice.
