I like Bear - she takes decent space opera with plenty of action and intrigue, and then turns the dial to 11 on exploring the motivations and unspoken communications of her characters. She always has wheels within wheels, and doesn't talk down to her audience. That said, this novel struggled to get moving at the start, but found a good pace about 1/3 through.
