Product Description

From Library Journal

As the meteoric rise of the Cult of Ishtar casts an ominous shadow over the divided factions dedicated to the terraforming of Venus's surface, the descendants of martyred heroine Iris Angharads find themselves torn by their own conflicting loyalties. Continuing the story begun in Venus of Dreams , this multigenerational saga explores the social drama of planetary colonization and its implications for humankind. Recommended. JC

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Reading - Pamela Does It Again! March 27 2000
By Aubrey
Format:Hardcover
Venus of Shadows is the second book of the Venus Series. This book goes further than just science-fiction and transforming Venus into a habitable world. It deals with many situations and obstacles that ordinary people deal with each day, proving that wherever mankind goes, his age-old problems will always follow him. The story is extremely well written, highly interesting and will captivate the reader. I've been waiting a long time for the next novel to be published and I'm very excited that it will be out soon!

I re-read this book about the colonization of Venus, the high hopes and hard trials of the colonists, and the obstacles laid on their pathsnot only by Nature but by human evil as well, in one night after having read it the first time long ago. It has stayed with me. It is even better than the first one in the series. It's so believable in its depiction of the wonder and tragedy of the settling of a difficult world and the founding of a new society that's almost scaring. Its characters are believable human beings with no black villains or pure-white heroes, their life and their society feel so significant that I lost track of the fact that they were fictional people living on a fictionalized world. I am eagerly waiting for Ms. Sargent to write the sequel.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing (as so many sequels are) March 27 2002
By Kim Boykin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed "Venus of Dreams," about the beginnings of human settlement of Venus, and I immediately ordered the sequel, "Venus of Shadows." I gave up on it after about 200 of its 600+ pages. It takes a long time for the story to get off the ground, both literally and figuratively. Much of the early part of the book is review of the previous book. There's little new science or technology (at least as far as I got), just some details about the domes on Venus. And I found the main characters flat and uninteresting. Malik is strikingly handsome; Risa is good at mediating conflicts; they both have trouble with intimacy; and I didn't care. Bummer.

Read "Venus of Dreams." Skip "Venus of Shadows."
