DOWNLOAD Ñ The Silver Ship and the Sea ¾ The colony planet Fremont is joyous riotous and very wild  Its grasses can cut your arms and legs to ribbons the rinds of its precious fruit can skewer your thumbs and some of the predators are bigger than humans  Meteors fall from the sky and volcanoes erupt  Fremont is verdant rich beautiful and dEnhanced  With no one to turn to Chelo and the others must now learn how to use their distinct skills to make this unwelcome planet home or find a way off it They have few tools an old crazy woman who wonders the edges of town spouting out cryptic messages; their appreciation and affection for each other; a good dose of curiosity; and that abandoned silver space ship that sits locked and alone in the middle of the vast grass plain  . A small group of altered children have been adopted by normal humans who wared with their parents as you might imagine this creates most of the conflict for the story with some accepting even loving them while many ostracize or fear there abilities seeing how each handles their lives with differing levels of support and abilities gives lots of chances to see the good and bad aspects of the society The story goes often to the well of the unfairness of the individuals and then stretches the tension and story out with a slow burn often stopping for a description of various parts of the world This mostly works well keeping the tension on a high slow burn while waiting for either the next problem to arise or be the last one solved every once in a while it does stretch out just a little bit but never badly

The colony planet Fremont is joyous riotous and very wild  Its grasses can cut your arms and legs to ribbons the rinds of its precious fruit can skewer your thumbs and some of the predators are bigger than humans  Meteors fall from the sky and volcanoes erupt  Fremont is verdant rich beautiful and dangerous  Fremont's single town Artistos perches on a cliff below rugged mountains  Below Artistos lie the Grass Plains which lead down to the. Powerful interesting story of racial conflict on a distant colony world of Earth The first colonists to reach this world were unaltered humans who opposed the idea of genetic engineering which caused major problems when a second colonist group of engineered humans arrived The resulting war destroyed or drove off most of the engineered people leaving a small group of orphaned engineered children behind The colonists not heartless adopted these children but as the children now approach adolescence and their uniue abilities become apparent they must deal with the colonists' growing hatred and suspicion of them Very realistic and poignant examination of the relationships between parent and child adoptees and their families and groups of people so different that they might as well be different species I love the combination of solid social science and hard science the strong female protagonist and diverse cast and the unflinching look at how prejudice warps even loving families I'll definitely be checking out the rest of this series

The Silver Ship and the SeaSea  And in the middle of the Grass Plains a single silver spaceship lies uiet and motionless  The seasons do not dull it nor do the winds scratch it and the fearful citizens of Aristos won't go near it  Chelo Lee her brother Joseph and four other young children have been abandoned on the colony planet Unfortunate events have left them orphaned in a human colony that abhors genetic engineering and these six young people are genetically. Fremont is a colonized planet a dangerous planet that always hides predators behind its wildness Chelo is one of the six altered humans left on this planet but none of her community of first colonists trust her at all I didn't like this book because it didn't feel real It was just too hard to immerse myself into this world into this plot into the characters None of the dialogue rang true to me The interactions felt fake and I didn't believe the colonists's hatred towards these six children I think a lot of the problem was that the whole book was written in Chelo's perspective as first person but we still somehow were able to know what other people felt and thought And I just don't trust the narrator to tell me what other people are thinking It all felt forcedThe world building it was a good attempt But the world didn't really interest me It wasn't radically different it wasn't that dangerous to be honest despite what the book summary promised Randomly picked up this book at the library because the summary looked interesting but honestly I just didn't care about anything in this bookOne star because I didn't want to read it even after powering through than 80 pages and skimming through the rest of the book Not recommended for anyone
