Scientists Kaye Lang and Mitch Rafelson are part of this small but determined minority. Once at the forefront of the discovery and study of the SHEVA outbreak, they now live as virtual exiles in the Virginia suburbs with their daughter, Stella - a bright, inquisitive virus child who is quickly maturing and eager to seek out others of her kind.
But for all their precautions, Kaye, Mitch, and Stella have not slipped below the government's radar. The agencies fanatically devoted to segregating and controlling the new-breed children monitor their every move - waiting for the opportunity to strike the next blow in their escalating war to preserve "humankind" at any cost.
"Top-shelf science fiction, thrilling and intellectually charged." (Amazon.com)

I think what I loved about this book was the voice of Jeff McCarthy--it was very soothing and added a dimension to the story that helped make it enjoyable for me. I really liked the story (Greg Bear is such a good writer), but felt it just skimmed the surface of what could have been done with this subject matter--it makes you want a sequel (Maybe that's the point). I felt it was incomplete and was disappointed at where it ended. I gave it four stars because of the ending, when I wanted to give it five because of the quality of writing. Still it was a very enjoyable listen. Wish it was unabridged.
