The direct sequel to the Hugo Award- winning novel Cyteen, Regenesis continues the story of Ariane Emory PR, the genetic clone of one of the greatest scientists humanity has ever produced, and of her search for the murderer of her progenitor - the original Ariane Emory. Murder, politics, deception, and genetic and psychological manipulation combine against a backdrop of interstellar human societies at odds to create a mesmerizing and major work in Regenesis. Who did kill the original Ariane Emory? And can her personal replicate avoid the same fate? Those questions have remained unanswered for two decades - since the publication of Cyteen. Now in Regenesis those questions will finally be answered.
The original Ariane Emory was a scientific genius - a "Special" - one of those rare people acknowledged by Union as a human treasure to be supported and protected. She had lived and died on Cyteen, the planetary hub of this amalgam of far-flung star stations. She had run the labs of Reseune, a secretive scientific enclave on Cyteen where the azi - genetically manipulated human clones that were the core of the population base in the far reaches of space - were engineered, born and trained. As the head of ReseuneLabs, and the Bureau of Science delegate to the Union government, she had more power than any single person in the history of Union. But Ari One had been a naturally born human, and she had had serious character flaws - flaws that eventually led to her murder. Before her death, however, she had initiated a project to recreate herself, to produce a true Personal Replicate - Ari Two.
Ari Two was originally intended to continue the first Ari's life work, and oversee projects it would take generations to complete. Young Ariane Emory was a Special like her forebear, and she had her predecessors's life model and private tapes to guide her. Would knowledge of Ari One's history be enough for her to overcome the flaws in her genetic nature? Or was she destined to suffer the same fate as her progenitor? For though another Special had been imprisoned for the murder of the first Ariane Emory, the real killer was still at large.

A huge amount of this book is spent on characters thinking, talking, analyzing, speculating, with very little action. Only recommended if you loved Cyteen and wanted to follow those characters further.

This novel is similar to the later novels in the Foundation series (the prequels and sequels written by Asimov towards the end of his life): some very intelligent characters spend an inordinate amount of time discussing every possible aspect of a situation until it is beaten to death and the reader is utterly confused. That said, the world and the plot of Regenesis are great (as they are in the prequel Cyteen), if only the author would let the actions speak for themselves.

Right, so it's not really an example of a babe with a blaster, but this list-building thing is new to me

Second prize again – isn’t good enough for him. Things are perfect or they’re garbage.

when you got out of the cradle and onto two feet, he came face to face with his genes – his looks – his temper, which he doesn’t control well. You two used to scare hell out of me . . . when we were seven. You had his temper. He had his temper.
