Summary

A “brilliant” vision of a future Earth populated by immortals—from the Nebula and Locus Award–winning author of The Shore of Women (The Seattle Times).   When Josepha was a teenager, she tried to kill herself. But the pills she swallowed did not deliver the release she was seeking—and three hundred years later, she is still alive, thanks to the miraculous scientific breakthrough called “the Transition.”   Like Josepha, the biologist Merripen can remember only too well what the world once was, before his groundbreaking work in genetic engineering rendered death obsolete. The “perfect” children he and Josepha bred together were unburdened by physical flaws and emotional defects. And now, centuries on, these undying offspring have an eternity to question the reasons for their very existence—and to seek answers in Death Cults and frightening new experiments in genetic manipulation.   Vividly imagined, episodic in structure, The Golden Space is a profound and disturbing meditation on humanity’s desire for immortality from “one of the genre’s best writers” (The Washington Post).

    Dr. Melanie Lipton is no stranger to the supernatural.  She knows immortals better than they know themselves, right down to their stubborn little genes.  So although a handsome rogue immortal seems suspicious to her colleagues, Sebastien Newcombe intrigues Melanie. His history is checkered, his scars are impressive, and his ideas are daring. But it's not his ideas that have Melanie fighting off surges of desire . . . 
    Bastien is used to being the bad guy.  In fact, he can't remember the last time he had an ally he could trust.  But Melanie is different—and under her calm, professional exterior he senses a passion beyond anything in his centuries of experience.  Giving in to temptation is out of the question—he can't put her in danger.  But she isn't asking him . . .

    It's against the law for elves and humans to fall in love. But laws can be broken.  
     
    When Venick is caught wandering the elflands, he knows the penalty is death. Desperate, he lies about his identity in hopes the elves will spare his life.  
     
    Ellina doesn't trust the human, and not merely because he speaks the language of men. Men lie. In elvish, however, lying is impossible. In a moment of intuition, Ellina decides to give Venick a chance: learn elvish, reveal his truths, and she will set him free.  
     
    That is not, of course, what happens.  
     
    As Ellina and Venick come to know each other, their feelings start to shift. Then Venick uncovers a dark secret, and suddenly, the fate of the elflands seems to rest in his hands. But every choice comes with consequences, and Venick must decide if it's worth risking his life to protect a race that hates him, all to save an elf he's not allowed to love.  
     
    Magic, love, and fate collide in this fantasy adventure from S. G. Prince.
