A companion to last year's The Last Colony, this fast-paced volume tells the story of the colony planet Roanoke from the perspective of Zoe Boutin Perry, a perceptive and intelligent 17-year-old. Zoe's voice is original and believable, and her take on the events is both entertaining and enlightening.
Zoe, the adopted daughter
Zoe and her relationship with the Obin -- via their two representatives, Hickory and Dickory -- are absolutely pivotal to the survival of not only the colony of Roanoke but also of the human race. (Tor, Aug., 336 pp., $24.95)
