    Good popcorn mil-scifi.

    OTOH, would it KILL writers who create characters from a specific cultural background to spend 5 minutes vetting their names with people from similar backgrounds?

    The main character is called Sorilla Aida. And she's supposed to be mexican. That's about as likely as a character from South Carolina called Skunky.

    Half the time it's hard to know what the hell is happening. It is still awesome at those times. That's how good this is. Looking forward to reading the 3rd volume soon.

    Reminded me of the books Neal Stephenson wrote when younger, which is a very high compliment. Awesome character development, lovely worldbuilding.

    Looks like having been an editor at io9 sort of guarantees you will write very well (based on a sample size of 2).

    So many conflicted feelings. Love the author, love most of her books, love her worldbuilding... but don't really love this one.
