Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Gene-edited human clans have scattered throughout the galaxy, adapting themselves to environments as severe as the desert and the sea. Atuale, the daughter of a Sea-Clan lord, sparked a war by choosing her land-dwelling love and rejecting her place among her people. Now her husband and his clan are dying of a virulent plague, and Atuale's sole hope for finding a cure is to travel off-planet. The one person she can turn to for help is the black-market mercenary known as the World Witch - and Atuale's former lover. Time, politics, bureaucracy, and her own conflicted desires stand between Atuale and the hope for her adopted clan."--Publisher.

    *Starred Review* Ogden's debut is a vivid science fiction novella rooted in Hans Christian Andersen's "The Little Mermaid." Decades after the World-Witch, Yanja, used gene-eaters to help Atuale morph her body so she could join her beloved Saareval on land, a plague is devastating the land-dwelling community that has struggled to accept a sea-turned-land creature living in their midst. Reluctantly, Atuale returns to the underwater domes of Yanja to negotiate to find a cure. The two of them must leave their planet to see what can be done, amid tension around their shared romantic past and the complicated deals they have struck. This is a dreamy reinterpretation of a tale that will feel both familiar and utterly alien: Ogden inserts the wide vastness of space travel into a magical classic that is, at its core, about curiosity and exploration, about making a difficult choice between two worlds, and about the sacrifices we are willing to make for love. Sun-Daughters, Sea-Daughters is a short page-turner that feels epic in its world-building craft and the depth of its protagonists. At once a fairy-tale retelling and a lyrical space opera, it straddles many genres to tell one nostalgic yet utterly new story. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
