In the Nebula Award-winning DARWIN'S RADIO, evolution took a dramatic leap for the human race. A retrovirus brought the advent of "new" children, with augmented senses and powers. This sequel details the consequences that occur over the next generation -- personal, social, political, biological. The augmented kids have to fight for their existence as they teach themselves to cope with their specialness. Scott Brick emphasizes the poignancy of the situation. Indeed, a feeling of melancholy pervades so much of his interpretation that, without concomitant tension, the narrative is rendered plodding.
