Venera fanning was last seen falling into nothingness at the end of "Suns of Suns". Now in "Queen of Candesce", Venera finds herself plunging through the air between the artificial continents of Virga, far from home and her husband, who may or may not be alive. Landing in the ancient nation of Spyre, Venera encounters new enemies and new friends (or at least convenient allies). She must quickly learn whom she can trust, and whom she can manipulate in order to survive. "Queen of Candesce" is her story.

Review quote

"* "With QUEEN OF CANDESCE, Karl Schroeder's Virga saga establishes itself as an SF saga of the same order as LeGuin's Earthsea series, Asimov's Robot stories, and Niven's ringworld series." SFRevu * "Comparable to classic SF epics like John Varley's Gaen trilogy and Jack L. Chalker's Well of Souls series, Schroeder's saga is an awe-inspiring example of masterful world-building.... (A) futuristic epic... to reckon with." Publishers Weekly, starred review"
