Equal parts action, sci-fi and romance, Ambasadora isn't quite like anything I've read before. Now I should say that I haven't read much contemporary sci-fi but I love that authors like Miller are bringing new perspectives and tropes to the genre. I was impressed with the depth and range of the characters. The romantic element drives the action and adds spice to the usual futuristic power struggle. The world the story takes place in is very well fleshed out with lots of interesting techy features like scentbots and intra-tats as well as a unique cultural and caste system. Everything is integral to the story and not just a backdrop. The things that happen to Sara Mendoza could only happen here. It's fun to get swept away in the action-packed plot but there's also plenty to stew over regarding the value of emotion and the importance of relationships. The best part is I know this is only the beginning and there are more books to come.
