From the Inside Flap
In a world dedicated to pleasure, one young rebel sets out on a forbidden quest--.
Published for the first time in a single volume, Tanith Lee's duet of novels set in a hedonistic Utopia are as riveting and revolutionary as they were when they first appeared two decades ago.
It's a perfect existence, a world in which no pleasure is off-limits, no risk is too dangerous, and no responsibilities can cramp your style. Not if you're Jang: a caste of libertine teenagers in the city of Four BEE. But when you're expected to make trouble--when you can kill yourself on a whim and return in another body, when you're encouraged to change genders at will and experience whatever you desire--you've got no reason to rebel...until making love and raising hell, daring death and running wild just leave you cold and empty.
Ravenous for true adventures of the mind and body, desperate to find some meaning, one restless spirit finally bucks the system--and by shattering the rules, strikes at the very heart of a soulless society....

The world is portrayed through the eye's of a young predominantly female (you can change gender at the drop of hat) narrator who is coming to realise the hollowness of this seeming perfect existence.
This is a brilliant far future fantasy, comparable with Michael Moorcock's 'Dancers at the end of time' trilogy, where rediscovery of ancient emotions leads to redemption for the central characters. Fans of both science fiction and fantasy should find somthing to please them in this book.
