The original Cyteen is a 5-star effort; this book amazingly stays in the same tone as decades ago and with the same narrative sensibilities. What takes it down from the perfect score is the flaw mysteries sometimes have in trying to tie up loose ends with more control but losing characterization flow as a result. It's still suprt strong, and continues one of my favoriate strong women characters of all literature, of all time: Ariane Emory.
