It's a science fantasy novel, taking place 100 years in the future from when it was written. Whitaker escapes, with help from the mysterious Amelia, from the repressive Elysium, where she's been living as a spy, back to her home, a utopian all female community in Freeland. (The West Coast of what used to be the US.) It's part adventure, part thriller, and part romance.
I hadn't read the book in a very long time, so was curious if it would stand up to my current reading standards. It seems that the older I get, the pickier I get.
It holds up surprisingly well I thought, and I very much enjoyed reading it again. It's not great literature by any means, but it's an engaging read with good pacing that kept me avidly turning the pages.
There still isn't much in the speculative genre to choose from in lesbian fiction, so I recommend it to anyone with an interest in that type of book. It's definitely a unique story in the body of lesfic work.
I could have ignored all that if I cared about the characters at all. But each of them was a walking stereotype, from the wise older woman to the warrior to the innocent outsider. The only character who showed even the slightest spark of life was the healer who kept hitting on every woman who walked by.
The secrets from the past that kept coming up weren't at all believable for the characters. I was reminded of the end to Scooby-Doo cartoons, or Hardy Boys books. ("Ha ha, I was the traitor all along! And you never suspected anything! Now let me tell you all about my plan while I lower you into a vat of acid!")
I like mindless entertainment as much as the next person, but it has to actually be entertaining, and this isn't.
