The Ophelia Prophecy
by Sharon Lynn Fisher
Tor, $15.99, 336pp
Release Date: April 1, 2014
Asha is an archivist in the stronghold called Sanctuary, perhaps the one human place left on earth after the war between humans and the bioengineered experimental trans-humans, called Manties - after their insectoid DNA. The Manties who survived the attempt to wipe them all out now control most of the planet, which they patrol in AI-airships.

When Asha’s father goes missing and she finds out the secret of Sanctuary’s survival, she sets out on a perilous quest to find her father and join him in a rebellion, even though this plan requires that she be taken captive. She just wasn’t expecting to be taken by none other than Pax, the son of the ruling Emir of the Manties, nor was she prepared for the powerful attraction they would feel for each other.

This sequel to Ghost Planet continues in the style Publishers Weekly described as “full of sex, science, and intriguing plot twists.” Readers who especially enjoy a whiff of submissive-dominance in their romances should find this one a treat. Even the AI ship seems to want to get in on a bit of the action. ~~ Chris R. Paige
