Phoenix Pick is continuing their “Free eBook-a-Month” promotion! This month, it’s Joan Slonczewski’s Daughter of Elysium!
(Note: this book was offered for free as Phoenix Pick’s very first free ebook more than two years ago. However, because of the limited nature of the program then, it had few downloads at the time. Phoenix Pick is
offering this outstanding book for free once more.)
About the book:
The pristine city of Elysium floats on the water world of Shora, inhabited by ‘immortals’ who have succeeded in unlocking the secrets of life.
Outsider Blackbear Windclan wants to share the secret of immortality with his own people, but can he, and the City of Elysium, survive the corruption and decadence that immortality has bred into the ageless society?
And what of the consciousness of self-aware nano-sentient servitors and their quest for vengeance?
“An enormously impressive achievement…A marvelous array of cultures presented in astonishing depth”—Kirkus Review

“Masterful story”—Library Journal
