Surprising and unusual science fiction. The core is an emotional intensity and complexity that I have rarely if ever come across. I was not always able to follow, but usually so, and a deeply rewarding story that frequently susrprises. ( )

A complex and multilayered work, with a well-written disabled protagonist, several carefully-constructed societies and meaty themes of responsibility and loss. It reminded me in some respects of C. J. Cherryh's work, with its lucid intelligence and the emotional distance between reader and book. Not an easy read, but a haunting and rewarding one. ( )
