    " I liked that main characters were gay but... I spent most of the book trying to figure out which protaganist was which - 1 character being called different names by each person they meet can be confusing. First half of the book was way to much introspective angst for my liking. Started to get interesting once the alien finally made itsself known. But then the ending just fell flat. (I kept yelling at the book, "Did you learn nothing from "Serenity"? Movie came out in '05, this book in '06) "

    " My first novel from Ms. Bear, and a treat it was! The characters are fully fleshed, and her detail is perfect; full but not boring. To date I have read five novels of hers, and each one is a delight to behold. Kudos! "

    " Bear's world building is excellent; there were so many good things: the matriarchal world, the way she handled homosexuality, the society that was based on assessing and killing humans but were strict vegans and infantilize women vs the society that valued natural reproduction and was horrified by the assessment but ate meat and kept the men as chattel, the watches. So many good ideas, but the espionage seemed routine, not up to her wide ranging intelligence. Read it for the world building, put up with the espionage. "

    " I actually liked this one, much more satisfying than her 'Undertow'. "
