The long-awaited sequel to the Hugo award-winning novels Cyteen and Downbelow Station.
The direct sequel to Cyteen, Regenesis continues the story of Ariane Emory, Personal Replicate, the genetic clone of one of the greatest scientists humanity has ever produced, and of her search for the murderer of her progenitor-the original Ariane Emory. Murder, politics, deception, and genetic and psychological manipulation combine against a backdrop of interstellar human factions at odds to confront questions that have remained unanswered for two decades...
Who killed the original Ariane Emory?
And can her Personal Replicate avoid the same fate?
The long-awaited, intricate sequel to Cherryh s Hugo-winning Cyteen (1989) brings events full circle. Brilliant 18-year-old scientist Ariane Emory, a clone, resumes the work of her original: psychogenesis, the cloning of psychology and memory. Fellow clone Justin Warrick tutors second Ariane, but when Justin s exiled original, Jordan, returns to Cyteen s research city of Reseune, he stirs up trouble and questions about who really killed first Ariane and why the clones of the participants in Cyteen s original power struggle seem to be reprising the roles of their predecessors. Plots and subplots revolve around second Ariane as she desperately attempts to unravel the motivations of players alive and dead. Complex and rich, with beautifully rounded characters, this novel can stand alone, but will delight fans of Cyteen with extra layers of meaning that resonate between old and new.

A solid sequel
As good as the first. How can Cherry make some of us care enough to get teary-eyed at parliamentary procedure narratives? But never mind. She does.
