Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

This sequel to Brosnan's The Sky Lords is as fast-paced and action-packed (and lurid and shallow) as its predecessor. Since the Gene Wars devastated the Earth with biological weapons, civilization has collapsed into a semi-feudal state: an enslaved peasantry of surface dwellers ("earthworms") pays tribute to the rulers of the Sky Lords, giant airships left over from before the Wars. But former slave Jan Dorwin, in command of the Sky Angel, a brand-new airship which can easily defeat the others, aims to free the groundlings. She is hindered, however, by the sentient computer, which is going insane, that controls the airship; by the diabolical Milo, her old enemy, now bizarrely resurrected after his death in the first book; and by the Sky Lords, unwillingly aided by Ryn, a runaway from a prewar utopian enclave, and his super-high-tech plane. Brosnan's plot and prose are straight out of the pulp adventure tradition, and offer the pleasures of stereotypical characters, a shot of sex and some rather gruesome violence, but nothing more.

From Library Journal

Former slave Jan Dorvin now commands her own Sky Angel, one of the gigantic airships used by the powerful Sky Lords to dominate the landbound populations of a devastated Earth. Determined to free the surface peoples, Jan is besieged by enemies within, as her ship's artificial intelligences turn against her, and without, as the Sky Lords join forces for a mass attack. Embellishing a familiar sf theme of primitive civilizations relearning vanished technologies, Brosnan creates a fast-moving sf adventure suitable for large libraries.

Much better than the first book I thought. Not really sure why, but I enjoyed Milo's return in this one a little bit better than meeting the character in the first book. he seemed more vulnerable, which was less annoying. :)
