Aliens arrive on Earth and issue the ultimatum that all nations must send two women to negotiate better political systems or the aliens will starting blowing up property. This novel begins as a simplistic women-are-oppressed dystopia, but somewhere after the 200-page mark it begins to show signs of deeper thought. It seems to be gearing up to be more about the corrupting effects of power than how bad men are. While the ending tempts me to continue with this five-book series to see where Duchamp is heading, the brutality and heavy-handedness of the beginning gives me pause.
