It is in the far future. The human species has diversified. Alongside the seed-forms of the Unevolved (ordinary humans) live and work the Augmented, people who have been forged, not born.

Descripción Pan 2004 Paperback, 2004. Estado de conservación: Good. Half-human, half-machine, Voyager Isol was as beautiful as a coiled scorpion - and just as dangerous. Her claim that she'd found a distant but habitable earthlike planet was welcome news to the rest of the Forged. But it could mean the end of what was left of the humanity who'd created and once enslaved them. It was on behalf of the 'unevolved' humans that Professor Zephyr Duquesne, cultural archaeologist and historian of Earth's lost worlds, was chosen by the Gaiasol military authority to uncover the truth about this second earth. And her voyage, traveling inside the body of Isol, will take her to the center of a storm exploding across a spectrum of space and time, dimension and consciousness. On an abandoned planet, in a wrinkle of time, Isol and Zephyr will find a gift and a curse: a power so vast that once unlocked, it will change the universe forever. With civil war looming, Zephyr's perilous journey will lead her to a past where one civilization mysteriously vanished.and another may soon follow. 392 pages. Nº de ref. de la librería 531790
