HEART OF GOLD
Genre: Science Fiction, General Science Fiction
Sharon Shinns new trade paperback, HEART OF GOLD (4.5), is more proof that Ms. Shinn is one of the most intriguing voices in speculative fiction. This time she turns her discerning eye to the difficulties of mixing two races of opposite cultures. An uneasy peace between Gulden and Indigo is shattered by a series of terrorist attacks. Avoiding an even greater disaster, however, will require an unlikely alliance between a truth-seeking scientist and an exotic outcast. Clever plotting, subtle characterization and just plain good writing will keep readers fascinated from first page to last.
