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.

up there with the best. Ms. Sargent has obviously done very thorough research and keeps you on edge with this tale of a young woman seeking her dream
Iris. Ms. Sargent does an excellent job of taking you through her range of emotions. Her tenacity and willingness to suffer through the harrassment of her effort to fulfill her goals.
they were all good and none really stuck out to me.
the struggle of a woman to reach her goals.
this really is a must read for any fans of science fiction.
Andi Arndt - Yes
The main character Iris was not likable based on her decisions. I was uncomfortable with types of mature content that was brought into the story. In many places it didn’t apply to the story and only seemed to be added as part of the writers political agenda.
