Description
Hugo and Nebula award-winning author David Brin is one of the most eloquent, imaginative voices in science fiction.nbsp;nbsp;Now he returns with a new novel rich in texture, universal in theme, monumental in scope--pushing the genre to new heights. Young Maia is fast approaching a turning point in her life.nbsp;nbsp;As a half-caste var, she must leave the clan home of her privileged half sisters and seek her fortune in the world.nbsp;nbsp;With her twin sister, Leie, she searches the docks of Port Sanger for an apprenticeship aboard the vessels that sail the trade routes of the Stratoin oceans. On her far-reaching, perilous journey of discovery, Maia will endure hardship and hunger, imprisonment and loneliness, bloody battles with pirates and separation from her twin.nbsp;nbsp;And along the way, she will meet a traveler who has come an unimaginable distance--and who threatens the delicate balance of the Stratoins' carefully maintained, perfect society.... Both exciting and insightful, Glory Season is a major novel, a transcendent saga of the human spirit.
