Publisher Description

This lauded work of science fiction and New York Times Notable Book of the Year explores a universe where genetic mutations have allowed certain individuals to traverse the stars. 

It is the second stage of human colonization—the first age, humanity's initial attempt to people the stars, ended in disaster when it was discovered that Earth's original superluminal drive did permanent genetic damage to all who used it—mutating Earth's far-flung colonists in mind and body.

Now, one of Earth's first colonies has given humanity back the stars, but at a high price—a monopoly over all human commerce. And when a satellite in Earth's outer orbit is viciously attacked by corporate raiders, an unusual young woman flees to a ship bound for the Up-and-Out.

But her narrow escape does not mean safety. For speeding across the galaxy pursued by ruthless, but unknown adversaries, this young woman will discover a secret which is buried deep inside her psyche—a revelation the universe may not be ready to face....

This Alien Shore

I can not remember any story I have enjoyed more than this one. Every emotion involved. Mind engaged (yeah, bad grammar, don’t care). A fairy tale perhaps for our “modern” age!

Simply one of the best scifi books I've read.

I've always been a fan of c.s. Friedman since Madness Season. But this book truly is the best of the best.
