The imposition of unnecessary obstacles / Malka Older.

Older, Malka, 1977- (author.).


"Mossa has returned to Valdegeld on a missing person’s case, for which she’ll once again need Pleiti’s insight. Seventeen students and staff members have disappeared from Valdegeld University--yet no one has noticed. The answers to this case may lie on the moon of Io—Mossa’s home--and the history of Jupiter’s original settlements during humanity's exodus from Earth. But Pleiti’s faith in her life’s work as a scholar of the past has grown precarious, and this new case threatens to further destabilize her dreams for humanity’s future, as well as her own." -- Provided by publisher.
