This sequel to Taylor's Ark (1993) carries on the adventures of Dr. Shona Taylor, her growing family, her menagerie of useful animals, and their home, the starship Sibyl. This time, the entourage lands on a planet on which a longevity experiment has gone spectacularly wrong, producing results exactly the opposite of what was intended, which the experimenters are trying their best to hide. Meanwhile, bounty hunters are on Shona's trail, and banks are trying to repossess the Sibyl. A heroine who must meet mortgage payments is a welcome variation from the norm in space adventures, and the book is full of other nice touches, too. Altogether, quite superior entertainment.
