Description

"Some books are good, some books are even great. This one is important" --SF Signal

Zavcka Klist has reinvented herself: no longer the ruthless gemtech enforcer determined to keep the gems they created enslaved, she's now all about transparency and sharing the fruits of Bel'Natur's research to help Gems and norms alike.

Neither Aryel Morningstar nor Dr. Eli Walker are convinced that Klist or Bel'Natur can have changed so dramatically, but the gems have problems that only a gemtech can solve. In exchange for their help, digital savant Herran agrees to work on Klist's latest project: reviving the science that drove mankind to the brink of extinction.

Then confiscated genestock disappears from a secure government facility, and the more DI Varsi investigates, the closer she comes to the dark heart of Bel'Natur and what Zavcka Klist is really after-not to mention the secrets of Aryel Morningstar's own past...

Praise For Binary ((R)evolution #2)

"Like all the best science fiction, the ®Evolution series uses its speculative construct to examine aspects of modern life, in this case tolerance and the benefits of multiculturalism."—GeekDad

"Stephanie Saulter has created an intriguing setting in a series that is loaded with promise."—British Science Fiction Association

"A fascinating and compelling read . . . It comes highly recommended and we can only hope that the rest of the series to come is just as gripping."—Starburst

"Some books are good, some books are even great. This one is important. 4.5 out of 5."—SF Signal

"Binary presents an entertaining and compelling story, with a tight and energetic climax . . . Stephanie Saulter is definitely an interesting writer, and one whose work I intend to keep seeking out."—Strange Horizons

"A brilliantly plotted, vividly told tale that encompasses the breath of humanity's triumphs and its failures."—Spec on Spec Fic

"It was almost impossible to put this book down . . . truly believable science fiction and I almost feel smarter from having read it. I can hardly wait to find out what happens next."—The Qwillery

"Delves into human psychology to show how various people react to new and challenging circumstances. There's the heartbreak of the couple who can't conceive, the norm who married a gem and faces ridicule from co-workers, adulation from music fans, revulsion from those who want a return to the way things were, and more . . . honest . . . a fantastic follow-up to Gemsigns and I can't wait to read the last book in the series."—Sci-Fi Fan Letter

"Tackles social issues in a brilliant and subtle way . . . There's something to be said about the realistic way that the social model of disability is presented here . . . Saulter does something very praise-worthy with all this; she puts it as a thread running through the whole story but only sometimes does it become blatant and unmistakable. You get the idea into your head in such a subtle way that you don't even realise that your understanding is slowly shifting in a new direction . . . I could go on at length and praise this novel over and over again, I really could . . . social sci-fi just doesn't get any better than this!"—Bibliotropic
