Michael Flynn opened his saga of near-future technology and space exploration with Firestar, in which he introduced a set of characters orbiting around one powerful and determined woman: Mariesa van Huyten, who is obsessed with the need to get humanity back into space and to save Earth from disaster.

It's not what I expected. Four distinct threads, two if them I enjoyed, and with only two of them actually joining at the end.

This story continues the Firestar story, taking the ship into space. This book is every bit as readable as Firestar, perhaps more. ( )
