This novel is the continuation of "Of Mist, and Grass, and Sand", which forms the first chapter and is one of the more hypnotic short stories ever written. The rest of the book does not live up to the high standards of the beginning, being more straighforward fantasy wish-fullfillment. Nonetheless, the whole is a beautiful future romance with excellent ideas about post-apocalyptic genetic manipulations and the fragmenting social structures of a dying world.
