The Green and Growing (Aqueduct)

2019

In this tale of the clash between two worlds and cultures, Miquita, one of the forty-two daughters of Commander Hritrar, is sent to the Rubruii after their defeat at her father’s hands. Hampered by diplomatic etiquette and a thoroughly alien culture, Miquita struggles to understand the destruction her father has leveled against the cities and orchards that depend on a failing artificial intelligence. Can she help repair the terrible damage her father’s forces have inflicted? Perhaps more importantly: should she?
