The story flows between serious steamy sex scenes (both tentacle/human and human/human (both F/F and M/F)), exciting space adventure, anxious suspense, moments of humor, and peeks at that deeper plot, until the absolutely fantastic climax that brings everything together, and an extremely satisfying conclusion.
The main characters are well-developed. I grew especially fond of the resourceful, entrepreneurial, confident, sexually submissive main protagonist and viewpoint character, Dale. I also liked her clever, excitable protege, Christine, and their interactions were good fun to read. The secondary characters are far from flat, and the minor ones are varied. Dale's former lover and colleague, Vince is a notable secondary character who added some of the book's humor just with his personality and mannerisms.
I also loved how tentacle monsters are portrayed in this universe, and how much consentacle (consensual+tentacle) sex there is, in contrast to common tentacle monster tropes. Some tropes are enforced, others altered, and Nobilis developed some really creative and interesting species of tentacle monsters with very varied traits. More than that, he created a universe in which their existence makes sense and is controversial. The worldbuilding in general is excellent in this novel. It's not bogged down with inconsequential details, but there certainly is enough detail to give a good feel for the universe.
This book is superb, and stood up well to a reread for me. I recommend it to fans of any or all of the following: erotica, sci-fi, tentacle monsters, and good storytelling.
