Annotation

Post-catastrophe novel of the moon breaking up and raining down on Earth. Much of the novel is hard science fiction with most of the text concerned with the science and technology, but the rest is concerned with three sets of survivors, the seven eves who were the survivors of those who were in space, and, unknown to them, two sets of survivors on Earth, one that went underground and the other that went under the sea. The seven eves created seven different genetic lines with different cultures, including one that isolated itself and developed into an authoritarian dystopia.
