Description

The Earth is dying, and our hopes are pinned on Ubastis, an untamed paradise at the edge of colonized space. But such an influx of people threatens the planet's unstudied ecosystem — a tenuous research colony must complete its analysis, lest humanity abandon one planet only to die on another.

The Ubasti colonists barely get by on their own. To acquire the tools they need, they are relegated to selling whatever they can to outside investors. For xenobiologist Vashti Loren, this means bringing Offworlders on safari to hunt the specimens she and her fellow biologists so desperately need to study.

Haunted by the violent death of her husband, the heroic and celebrated Lasse Undset, Vashti must balance the needs of Ubastis against the swelling crush of settlers. Vashti struggles in her role as one of the few colonists licensed to carry deadly weapons, just as she struggles with her history of using them. And when she discovers a genetically engineered soldier smuggled onto the surface, Vashti must face the nightmare of her husband's murder all over again. Standing at the threshold of humanity's greatest hope, she alone understands the darkness of guarding paradise.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 02, 2015 – This series launch hits the sweet spot with a truly alien setting, a well-developed future culture, and a thoughtful, talented heroine. Vashti Loren hunter, naturalist, mother, and the widow of a revered explorer is a settler on Ubastis, a fertile, lush world where settlement has been intensely restricted to prevent the environmental collapse that ruined Earth and its other colonies. Tensions are rising between those who would protect Ubastis against further colonization and those who want to open it up to widespread settlement. As Vashti considers her role in the coming conflict, she confronts the wounds of her past through uncomfortable interactions with a bioengineered super-soldier similar to the one who murdered her husband. Reed is a skilled storyteller and the world of Ubastis is a vivid creation, with a Muslim culture that is simply part of the overall setting rather than a driver of the plot. Vashti is a troubled, fascinating protagonist whose story ends on a cliffhanger, with greater battles for the fate of Ubastis and her own family yet to come.
