What I liked about the book:
1. The world building was really well done. I liked how the foreign planet was strange but still tangible. There’s a nice climactic construction and it impacts adaptations in the native sentient beings. I liked the sociology behind the Uuvali and their culture and the way it contrasted with average humans, including language, clothing, and food choices.
2. The layering of secondary plots, I enjoyed how these ran in conjunction with the main plot. I think the best one was the double antagonist plot, and figuring out which of the two would prevail over the other.
3. The ending is not a neat little bundle of happily ever after, there’s some heartbreak that comes with it. I wanted things to be so much more different for one of the main protagonists, but it was a real world look at how things don’t always work out for people even when they try their hardest.
Horizon is a fast-paced, engaging pageturner with an emphasis on political intrigue and the ethics and moral obligations of colonization. The characters are well crafted with clear, relatable motivations. Carol’s writing is crisp and direct as always, making this a great read for teenagers and adults alike. If you enjoy intelligent, family friendly sci-fi, you will enjoy Horizon.
