bookshelves: sci-fi, re-read, futuristic

I love this series - five books, beginning with City of Pearl. We follow Shan Frankland, an environmental police officer, from an Earth controlled by corporations to a distant planet, where religious Earth settlers co-exist with several alien species. Shan is in charge of a group of scientists, who quickly get on the wrong side of the Wess'Har (the peacekeeping species who tend to ruthlessly move to eliminate any threat to the planet), and she becomes involved in increasingly complex negotiations between species.

Shan - vegan, pagan, hard-arse Shan - is a fantastic character, and I love the way she develops over these books. Can't wait to re-read the next one.
