About the Author
Elizabeth Bear was born on the same say as Frodo and Bilbo Baggins, but in a different year. This, coupled with her childhood tendency to read the dictionary for fun, has led inevitably to penury, intransigence, and the writing of speculative fiction. Her hobbies include incompetent archery, practicing guitar, and reading biographies of Elizabethan playmenders.
She is the recipient of the John W. Campbell Award for best New Writer and the author of over a dozen published or forthcoming novels, including the Locus Award-winning Jenny Casey trilogy and the Phillip K. Dick Award-nominated Carnival. A native New Englander, she spent seven years near Las Vegas, but now lives in Connecticut with a presumptuous cat.

The original ship crew were frozen after the cataclysmic events in its precursor Dust and in this book are restored in new bodies. The ship restoration is not complete as there are blind areas, that the new captain, Perceval, and her Angel Nova (an artificial intelligence) cannot penetrate. Even more worrying, the dark areas start to spread.
Perceval is a Conn, a member of the family that run things. The ex-head of the family, Alasdair Conn, instilled into his family a brutal disregard for anything except remaining in power. The fratricidal strife that drove the plot in Dust resurfaces in this novel. Tristen Conn is awakened to become the new First Mate. Along with Mallory the mage and his faithful, sentient power tool, Gavin, he is sent into the dark areas, where is it feared a secretly awakened Arianrhod Conn and her Angel Asrafil are en route to find a secret weapon hidden by the dead sorceress Cynric Conn. Benedick Conn, the father of Perceval and Tristen's brother, along with Chelsea Conn, are also awakened, as a second team questing after Arianrhod, as backup in case the first fails.
The Conns are not the only people on the ship: there are Means who acts as servants for the Conns, and small colonies of Go Backs, people who want off of the starship.Read more ›
Sheri Tepper's The Companions is another proper science fiction novel - for those who liked Dust and Chill

I love everything about the world, the family, the technology, the prose, the plot, the shiny, the damage, the emotional states... Yeah, that. Everything.
I want to live there - which may sound idiotic - but dude!
ETA: The way some authors stay doggedly with a story in sequels, refusing to change, shackled to some imaginary framework of how to manage a *series* oft times bores me. This author is not afraid to change things as the story dictates - and if that means that a beloved character - is changed into a nearly unrecognizable other character - she is not afraid to do it. I just wished she'd be rewarded for it more often by readers who appreciate her fearlessness as a story teller.
