Description

Agapanthus was kidnapped when she was only two years old, but she doesn't remember it. In fact, she doesn't remember her home planet at all. All she knows is Deeyae, the land of two suns; the land of great, red waters. Her foster-family cares for her, and at first that's enough. But, as she grows older, Agapanthus is bothered by the differences between them. As an Exchanger, she's frail and tall, not short and strong. And, even though she was raised Deeyan, she certainly isn't treated like one. One day, an Exchanger boy completes the Deeyan rite-of-passage, and Agapanthus is inspired to try the same. But, when she teams up with him, her quest to become Deeyan transforms into her quest to find the truthaof who she is, and of which star she belongs to.

Review quote

"The Seas of Distant Stars combines convincing, imaginative world building and vivid imagery with lush writing that is often poetic and lyrical, and at times masterful and sophisticated as well. Francesca Varela is an impressive young writer with the potential to produce classics of literary science fiction in the tradition of Le Guin's Hainish novels."

-Lara Campbell McGehee, author of White Sky
