This novella, the precursor to Reynold's novel "House of Suns", has all the same epic time scales and sweeping scope of that book, with more intimate character portraits of his protagonists, Purslane and Campion. The action takes place almost exclusively at one extended family reunion, and like the novel, involves the unmasking of a traitor in the ranks. The writing made it very easy to imagine myself as a multi-million year-old space traveler with the world weary experience of one of these characters, and the mystery was rather fun to unravel as well. The final reveal was satisfyingly breathtaking and truly worthy of Reynold's reputation as a master of modern Space Opera. ( )
