by Karen Haber and Robert Silverberg
Media: Mass market paperback
Cover art: Jim Burns
Winter is the mutant season.
When winter comes the mutants gather.
They have always lived in the shadows, invisible.
Now they will be tested. The first mutant leader to emerge into the light of public life has been murdered. Finding her assassin has fallen to the clan, a clan already beset by the pressures of the normal world.
Michael, torn between his mutant clan and a normal lover.
Melanie, alone among the mutants and rejected by the normals.
Jena, willing to use her mutant powers and her sexual wiles to get what she wants—Michael.
As society faces the implications of human evolution first-hand, and political maneuvering threatens to tear the clan apart, the mutants must find a way to protect their identity, their lovers, their very lives.
