This was a lovely subtle piece of science fiction of a sort I don't see enough of It's reminiscent of The Left Hand of Darkness and Ammonite anthropological and travelogue ish in the best senses Lord develops characters slowly letting the reader discover them through their actions as they are placed in new and strange situations The story begins with a large scale tragedy but starts the action some time later so that the book is about long term personal coping rather than the immediate aftermath I have a couple of minor issues with the book Though it is very different from Lord's first book Redemption in Indigo she at times falls back on some similar narrative techniues Addressing the reader works in a folktale but pulls me out of the story here making me wonder how the tale is being related to me and why in a way that I shouldn't be uestioningThe book is very episodic and some of the episodes were resonant than others Some threads seem like they would come back again but really don't make any return appearance I love seeing sexual minorities and ethnic minorities portrayed in SF and for the most part Lord handles those topics well There is a character of ambiguous gender in this novel who is written as a well rounded member of the team neither a curiosity past the initial mention nor a source of ridicule I was therefore a little disappointed when at one point very very minor spoiler view spoilersomeone wants to turn Lian's story into a romantic holo but Lian firmly redeclared as gender neutral which seems to negate that possibility hide spoiler
