Tepper once again returns to the theme that humans have seriously f'd up the world and it needs to be set right, somehow. Set in the same world as Plague of Angels, but you really don't need to have read it for this book. Abasio and Blue the horse return is about all, some years later. Parts of this are so similar to PoA - the same sadistic, vengeful female with plans to rule the world, although this one has a mother. Xulai is sort of interesting I guess...but frankly I didn't find the attraction between her and Abasio believable. It's rather slow-paced, with most of the book a journey to safety with a couple stops along the way; I liked most of that. But then the ending turns into the ridiculously weird. So...not even close to being my favorite. Tepper's last book, Fish Tails, is supposed to also be in this world.
