Publisher's Summary

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.

Just as good as the first

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.
