accoucheur responsable des rplicateu 435 A buddy read with Evgeny and Maria because we love Science FictionI love this author I love this Universe and I love this world of extremes Every time I approach the next volume of this series I experience this trepidation as to what weirdo society are we going to be introduced to this time The genius of the series lays in the ability of the author to present a system of life which seems extremely outlandish until you get to the basic premise and you see how everything must have started in a very average world where an idea for The Greater Good takes root be it ideological religious or purely economic and goes to the most extreme end of that idea to where the final product has only a passing resemblance to the original Often the very thing it had tried to prevent is a likely side effect This is another perfect example Imagine a group of religious leaders of a strict church who believe that fornication and sexual temptation are sins but are having a really hard time controlling themselves around women The temptation in this case any woman becomes euated with the sin The woman then is of the Devil but unfortunately She is needed for procreation so the poor righteous saints have to endure and suffer by engaging in sin over and over against their will but they have no choice Well one day the sinful scientists on Beta Colony come up with uterine replicators a way in which if you have ovum and sperm samples and with genetics being advanced by utilizing one of the replicators you can skip the woman all together This must have been like the greatest gift from G D to those long suffering dudes So armed with the needed biological materials geneticists a charter for terraforming a new planet their religion and the firm resolution to never suffer a demon woman ever again the Founding Fathers established the first all male planet on Athos 200 years into this social experiment the society has settled down and Dr Ethan U is one of the leading geneticists on the planet happily producing sons for ualified fathers and their Designated Co Parent However all the ovum they had counted on since the establishment of the planet is degenerating and not viable so in order to keep up with the population replacement if not growth they have to order from another planet Since not many people agree with the peculiarities of Athos and the fact that women are not allowed to even be in the vicinity of this planet they get a shuttle only once a year The shipment of the priceless for the survival of the planet ovum is delivered but is wrong There has been a big mistake and the council for Population Growth decides to send poor Ethan to the planet of the shipment s origin among the sinners and women the HORROR He needs to straighten things out and return with viable genetic material This is how Ethan found himself not only in a foreign place full of people who think him a freak in the middle of a major international conspiracy people trying to kill him but worst of all he met a woman And was kind of shocked that talking to her did not suck his life force and surrender him to the Devil He just had to give it some time The woman is Ellie uinn the mercenary who Admiral Miles Naismith took to his grandmother on Beta Colony and left her with some money to be able to receive skingrafts for the horrible burns of her body and face after a mission gone bad The last time we saw her she was barely alive and in a horrible pain and depression I was so happy to see her here back in shape with successful grafts and a brand new face And she was a force to be reckoned with This is her first spy mission and she doesn t want to disappoint The Admiral who gave her his blessings and told her she would love it It is very endearing to see how much she admires Naismith and in his absence tried to think What Would Naismith Do in the absurd situations she and Ethan were put in over and over again As always in this series there is a mystery adventure difficult choices and nonstop action from beginning to end Also as always there is the core of ethical dilemmas which is the base of the series We can see some of us making similar decisions for our lives but we are also shown the double edged sword of our decisions What can we as humans live with and justify in our minds in order to make it fit the idea of who we are Isn t that the infernal uestion of our reality today tooI recommend this series to all who love Sci fi adventure and fantasy It is written in a dynamic manner without sacrificing uality and emotion Give this series a chance After all what could you looseNow I wish you all Happy Reading and may you always find what you need in the pages of a Good book
