"Space opera at its very best"
She called him father until the day she learned she was his
clone. Dr. Cherijo Torin escaped from him and his
experiments on her but the League, of which earth is a
member, denied her request for sentient status and instead
declared her the property of her creator. Rather than
submit to that megalomaniac man, Cherijo escapes and ends
up joining the Jorenian alliance.
Cherijo is happy aboard the Jorenian spaceship Sunlance
accompanied by her beautiful daughter and her telepathic
Terran husband. She treats the sick and cares for the
injured while evading the bounty hunters out to bring her
back to her creator. Cherijo never expects a calm life.
On this voyage, she and her shipmates are almost sacrificed
to a planet's deity, she plays matchmaker to a lovesick
alien, and learns why the natives of an entire planet are
sterile but whose inhabitants cannot die. All in a solar
moment for Cherijo.
The protagonist's life is fulfilled, but ever changing and
action packed; readers adore and admire Cherijo. ETERNITY
ROW is space opera at its very best as the plot contains
exotic alien life forms and colorfully fascinatingly
strange planets. S.L. Viehl has created a character and a
futuristic setting that is second to none in its
readability, quality, and social mores.
