Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
The second volume of the spectacular science fiction thriller evolving from the works of Arthur C. Clarke, grandmaster of science fiction and author of 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Her code name is Sparta. Her beauty veils a mysterious past and abilities of superhuman dimension - the product of advanced biotech engineering.

When a team of scientists is trapped in the gaseous inferno of Venus, Sparta must risk her life to save them, unaware that her actions will help recover a mysterious artifact: irrefutable evidence of life on another planet.

As the secrets of the artifact are revealed, Sparta uncovers a mystery which may lead her to the truth of her own identity.

This gripping saga brings together the genius of Arthur C. Clarke and the talents of distinguished science fiction writer Paul Preuss.
