really liked it
bookshelves: what-sf
Read in August, 2010

One star for originality but four and a half stars for plot and character development. Heroine is a smart-mouthed, "don't tell me what to do," amazing at her job but on the run navigator who is one of only a few people who can do what she does because of a special gene. She has recently suffered a devastating loss. Love interest is at turns tender and dangerous, just and immoral. People In Charge are out to get her, she keeps messing up, has difficulty trusting, but her friends are loyal and love her anyway. Sound familiar? But Aguirre handles it well and I couldn't put the book down. My one complaint is that too many place and people names are taken from other books or sound-alikes. I have to add that this gene can't be that rare because anyone who looks like she does has it and she looks like my sister. (Does that mean I have it, too? Excellent.)
