It is not her story. Rather, it is the story of the human ruler, the Stadholder Firdaus who re-discovers himself after he is wanned as a capable ruler and passionate family man.
The story is well, it's just strange. People eat other people. Memories are transferred through flesh. The native life on the planet is truly alien. Balder pushes the boundaries of fantasy because what she does in the story is so alien, yet the survival story is very human.
The book is intellectual and original, a little off-putting, but fascinating and a compelling read. I would encourage someone who doesn't want more of the same in the genre to pick it up.
An Earth colony ship lands on a distant planet. As the population grows and spreads out, they forget that high technology (like computers) exist, and view Earth more as a fable than anything possible. At the same time, they think they know and understand the planet they were born on. Not only are they wrong, but wrong in the most glorious and interesting way possible.
I really enjoyed this book. Highly recommend it to anybody interested in seeing just how alien an alien race can be.
What if memories could be transferred in a bite of flesh? What if you personality were an amalgamation of everyone you'd ever consumed? What if your life span was extended beyond the human span?
Would you still be human? Could you use your alien mind-set to save a doomed colony?.
Excellent, strange and thought provoking SF.
