Playing God by Sarah Zettel

Description: Bioverse Inc. executive Dr. Lynn Nussbaumer has just been handed the project of her career and the challenge of a lifetime: to save an entire planet. After millennia of constant war on All-Cradle, one of the Great Families of the Dedelphi launched a viral weapon that mutated into a universal plague. Desperate, an unprecedented Confederation of Dedelphi leaders asked for Earth's help. The only solution:

Evacuate more than a billion Dedelphi to vast orbital enclaves for decades, while Bioverse's environmental engineers cleanse and rebuild All-Cradle's entire ecosphere.

The truce declared by the fragile Confederation can't control the tangled mass of Dedelphi feuds and vendettas; factions in each clan fear that relocation is a deadly ploy by their enemies. Still other Dedelphi-panicked by Terran sociologist Arron Hagopian's revelations of past Earth abuses-are convinced the city-ships are internment camps controlled by aliens who have conquered All-Cradle in a bloodless coup.

As a new war erupts, Lynn, Arron, and the family of the exiled Dedelphi Praeis Shin will be fighting not for their goals but for their lives. The humans can abandon the Dedelphi's doomed planet. Or they can use Earth's superior weaponry to impose peace on All-Cradle.

But they can only continue the project by crushing all opposition, all resistance-all independence-becoming alien overlords who save Dedelphi culture by destroying it. Unless, somehow, Dr. Lynn Nussbaumer can find a way to create a new world-without playing God.
