This complicated story definitely makes for an enjoyable read. Nimisha is a very complex and endearing character, easy to relate to. I never found this book boring or devoid of action, and the characters were all extremely believable. I highly recommend it, however some of the more hard-core science fiction fans may not be as interested in it as I was.
I enjoyed reading all the background provided in the first part of the book and getting the feel of a new SF society - these were up to Anne's usual high standard in my opinion. I also did not think the characters are one dimensional or flat as some other reviewers have mentioned, maybe more subtle. Perhaps it is because this book is meant to be the first in a series - and more development will occur later. Regardless, I enjoyed meeting all these new people although I'd have like more on the Sh'im individuals.
This book is not for someone who likes SF books with lots of violence, running battles and other ACTION to make it move along, but it should satisfy otherwise.
