Product Description

The thrilling conclusion to Tanith Lee s compelling Secret Books of Venus quartet, Venus Preserved is set centuries into the future in the undersea city of Venus (Lee s brilliantly re-imagined alternate Venice), the site of a macabre experiment to bring two lost souls back to life. Salvaged from beneath the sea and rebuilt under a dome, Venus itself has been resurrected with a vast network of advanced computers that regulate weather, noise, and the most precious undersea commodity of all air.

When the experiment goes awry, claiming several lives, the questions abound: Was it merely an accident Computer failure Or has an airborne virus been unleashed Or is there an even more sinister danger afoot, a force from beyond that threatens the survival of Venus itself To answer these questions, a traveler from the surface is forced to confront mysteries in his own past and to reveal the connection that ties his past to that of the unavenged spirits wreaking havoc on the doomed city.

Venus Preserved ends the series with a bang one of the most imaginative and interesting books of Tanith Lee s career. Baryon
