Peter Wiggin, still the Hegemon, makes a serious mistake when he rescues Achilles from the Chinese. Peter thinks he can control Achilles, but Achilles quickly gains the upper hand and forces Peter to flee for his life. Meanwhile, Petra finally convinces Bean to have children with her, but he insists that any embryos with his altereded genes be destroyed. Of course, the extra embryos are stolen and Bean and Petra try to recover them in a showdown with Achilles.

Though I am quite tired of the propagation of the species propaganda, the story is still an engaging one and I have to get all the way to the end, now that I've come this far.
