    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.

    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).
