    Hugo Award winner Elizabeth Bear has been called one of the best science fiction authors of her generation. In Dust she skillfully spins a classic science fiction trope - the lost generation ship - into a complex and compelling tale of fallen angels, secretive family politics, and sexual taboo.

    A new twist

    This book took one of the old standards of Science Fiction; The generation ship, evolved it into a
    modern thoughtful story. Adventure, Hi-Scie..Show More »

    Hugo Award winner Elizabeth Bear has won high praise for her thought-provoking science fiction. The second in Bear’s powerful Jacob’s Ladder series, Chill finds the generation starship Jacob’s Ladder with a new captain—Perceval. As Perceval struggles with the ship’s recent damage, remnants of the rebellion still linger and a threat to the crew grows.

    Sequel to "Dust"

    I would change the narration. This author's writing is fantastic and deserves to be read with passion and energy.

    Booklist calls the world of Hugo Award winner Elizabeth Bear’s spellbinding Jacob’s Ladder series “magnificently populated, well worth visiting.” Here the trilogy that began with Dust and Chill draws to its stunning conclusion. The passengers of the generation spaceship Jacob’s Ladder have found a new home at last. But the planet Grail is already inhabited - and its population of genetically engineered humans has no intention of sharing the world.

    Could not get into this series at all.

    I'm not sure I would try another book by Elizabeth Bear unless someone I knew has read or listened to it and recommends it. It took me a year to finis..Show More »
