Editorial Reviews


"Ben Bova continues his epic of solar system exploration by taking refugees from Earth's formidable fundamentalist theocracies on the long voyage to Saturn. The pacing is brisk, and--now that Arthur C. Clarke has retired and Charles Sheffield has departed--Bova is definitely the man to do justice to the astronomical marvels of the Saturnian system with its enormous potential as a second home for humanity, especially in the complex environments of its moons. Loud, prolonged applause, then, for the strengths of this book."
--Booklist on Saturn

"Bova proves himself equal to the task of showing how adversity can temper character in unforeseen ways."
--The New York Times on Venus

"Ben Bova's latest near-future SF thriller supplies a suspenseful ride and plenty of high-tech hardware as it builds to a climactic confrontation over Washington, D.C."
--Publishers Weekly on Powersat

From AudioFile

Is there life in the rings around Saturn? The answer could affect humanity's settlement of the solar system--and the upcoming election at Goddard colony, which revolves around plans to mine for ice in the rings and pits Holly Lane (sister of the adventurous Pancho) against the devious Malcolm Eberly. The four narrators switch off to help listeners keep track of the many plot threads and provide fairly consistent voices for all the major characters. Their efforts make this space opera easy to follow as the emphasis shifts between political intrigue and scientific exploration. Ben Bova's Grand Tour series mixes sudsy drama and action in the style of the TV series "24."
