This novela is a surprising twist combining elements of both science fiction and fantasy. While I've always been a fan of Scalzi's character-driven military and hard scifi, it's good to see him try something different. The story packs a lot of twists and turns and by dealing with Gods as real beings (a la Neil Gaiman's American Gods) it adds a lot of dimension. It especially deals with the dilemma of when a seemingly moral and just cause can go horribly wrong in a creative and somewhat horrifying fashion.
