It's nice to read a novel that doesn't require a sequel. The world-building in this novel was excellent, and the characters were interesting and original. The reviews on the cover by Anne McCaffrey and Ursula Le Guin were positive, and that drew me to it. I wasn't disappointed. The writing isn't too-flowery, the plot moves forward throughout (doesn't stall with over-wordy introspection) and Baker even infuses a little humor. Great book.
