When Lizbeth and Harvey Durant decided to invoke the Law, when Dr. Potter did not rearrange the most unusual genetic structure of their future son, barely an embryo growing in the State's special vat-the consequences of these decisions threatened to be catastrophic.

    " The technique worked okay in Dune, but I got tired of reading the inner thoughts of multiple characters closely interleaved- and it's confusing early on when the characters aren't yet that distinct. "

    " Nicely written, has a lot of detail for the bio-engineering part, it represent its caracters well, and the story has good foundations. But the ending is kind of forced upon the reader and disappointing. "
