The start of a series about genetic adaptations to cold weather planets. The main character is pretty well done and likeable, the world is interesting, and if it weren't for that fact that it was a subarctic climate, Utopian.

The book is a little preachy in the pro-environment sense, which doesn't bother me that much since I do feel that most corporations exploit the environment and their employees. But if that part of the writing doesn't bother you, then enjoy.

Mostly, it is a good story told in such a way that I can't discern either author's voice, which is probably because they wrote it together and passed it back and forth to make it seamless. And it is. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
