    The Venus Project calls upon the strongest and most courageous to create a prosperous world in the dismal wilderness of Venus. Those who demonstrate the skill and the passion to embark on this adventure must transform the barren planet in the midst of political and cultural unrest. When Risa and Benzi, children of Iris, one of the first people to partake in this project, find themselves in opposing forces on the battlefield, it is their love and perseverance that will determine the destiny of the new land.

    This book is the second in the trilogy and it was better than the first. Again, Ms. Sargent keeps you on the edge of wanting to know more. I love reading science fiction and this book did not fail in providing some very thought provoking ideas of how science may assist in meeting the needs of the future. This is a must read for all fans of science fiction.

    On the edge of a mystical border called the Limen, close to a beautiful canal-laced city, a humble candlemaker rescues a child, whom he raises as his apprentice. Years pass and the child's unusual talents are revealed, the gentle art of candlemaking slowly transforming into something far more sinister. Lingering in the shadows, enemies watch and wait - a vengeful aristocrat, an exotic queen and the lethal creatures known only as the Morte Whisperers.They hunger after the child's ancient magic.

    Story

    A great fantasy read. All of the characters are believable and presented in a story that you can feel yourself being part of the action... of which there is plenty! The story of a young boy (or is he?) who finds himself in a struggle for survival while unknowingly is a pawn for some and the source of redemption for others.

    This first in a series is well worth your time and money. Well written, excellent narration and one in which you will find yourself identifying with the characters and their struggles.

    The Project - the terraforming of Venus - was begun centuries ago. And generations more will come and go before the planet's surface has been rendered fully habitable and its human settlers, the Cytherians, can finally leave their protective domes. There are those, however, whose patience has grown dangerously thin -- malcontents unwilling to resign themselves to never enjoying the fruits of freedom promised to their descendents.

    Story

    Great closing book to the trilogy. Earthling, Venutians and the Habbers all tied up in intrigue and exploration. Read the whole series folks. Keep in mind that these books were written in the late 1980's. Excellent story, excellent characters and very narrated. Performance editing could have been better but not a major distraction.

    Iris Angharads, a determined, independent woman, sets herself one massive goal: to make the poison-filled atmosphere of Venus hospitable to humans. She works day and night to realize her dream, with only one person sharing her passion, Liang Chen. It seems impossible to make Venus, with its intolerable air and waterless environment, into a paradise, but Iris succeeds. And in doing so, she also creates a powerful dynasty, beginning with her first born, Benzi Liangharad.
