I thought I'd gone off the SFR genre lately, but when I finally went through and got all my old palm-reader books from Fictionwise converted so that I can read them on my current e-reader, I opened this one to check it all looked ok, and was hooked all over again. I'm pretty sure this was also the first book of the genre I'd read back in 2005 and, yep, I still really like it.

The romance does feel very sudden, or rather becomes serious very very fast, but I love the characters and all the little details about the station and culture, and the adventure part of the plot feels equally as important to me.
I found Gillie's reasons for hiding her full identity were valid, and it made sense that she'd got a bit tangled up in her omissions as the plot went on - she hadn't intended to stay on the station, but then things snowballed and it all got a bit awkward. She was rather stuck between a rock and a hard place with the choice between fibbing and undermining a major part of the Khalaran culture.

If there had been more in this universe, I'd want to see more of Simon, especially now he's got himself a corporeal form. Note to self: look for fanfic. All in all, well worth the re-read!
