By Donald Moffitt
Like all human colonists born into the crushing gravity of Jupiter, Jarls Anders commands tremendous physical strength and survival ability. And, like his fellow Jovians, Jarls has grown up innocent, easy to exploit.
Shipped between Jupiter, Venus, and Earth in indentured servitude, Jarls finds his life in constant danger - not just from the harsh landscapes of distant planets, but also from the treacherous politics of human aristocracy. Navigating the solar system proves much easier than navigating political conspiracy and a government coup. Jarls's only chance for survival is if he can leave behind his rustic innocence and build a strength of character to match the strength of his body.
In JOVIAN, author Donald Moffitt creates a fast-moving SF adventure packed with grand themes and big ideas sure to please fans of his other titles and of brand-new and classic SF adventure alike.
