Rosenblum, Mary -- Horizons

Political dynasties slug it out against a backdrop of rebellious orbital city-habitats. I was set to like the politics, which are quite solid on the personal level -- rumor, Net innuendo, and the power of local organizing playing out against each other. However, the larger political scale turned out to be stupid, with the big plot set in motion by a pointless boogeyman/strawman group. The biology was stupid too -- magical wonderkids evolve in zero gravity. (Bonus points for constantly using them as a plot touchstone: good guys love them, bad guys hate them. Baby Sue?)
