A half-millennium after the last survivors of a dying Earth land on a pristine planet, the Eighteenth Mother, leader of the enlightened city of Pelion, finds herself at a crossroads. Though the long, slow process of Transformation is proceeding, a critical imbalance has emerged that threatens the success of this promised leap in human evolution, for far too few candidates are women. She knows the Transformation of the world requires her to look to the slave city of Agave. There, seeds of a plot planted years before are beginning to blossom, and a key figure in that plan, Lillas, is about to flee Agave and seek refuge in Pelion. While there and joined with Reddin, the city will face a conflict that threatens to rip Lillas from Pelion and return her to the mercies of Agave’s savage new ruler. The Eighteenth Mother knows that Agave must be reborn in order to ensure the Sower’s promise can be kept. The hidden key to that rebirth lies within Reddin and Lillas, but only if they can find it in time.
