Augh! I'm glad I have book 2 to hand.

Not a chewy easy-to-love book; as with a lot of Bear's work you've got to reach in and meet the characters halfway. Fuck if I didn't love Ng and Perceval and Rien though. Wall-to-wall genderfuck, yay! Some bits of the last third didn't quite work for me, and I could have done with a little more explanation in some bits, but overall me likey. Onward to book 2, Chill!

Oh. Worth noting in that, rarely for me, there are characters wanting to hook up and I *cared*. Of course this is a Bear book and there are no happy couples *ever*. Not a spoiler if you've ever read any of her work ^^
