An excellent work with amazing world building and characters with depth who grow. However so much of the book is spent on the main character's endless soul searching and navel gazing that it almost made me start searching my own soul for a reason not to skip over pages of "Oh, I'm a severly traumatised, delicate lost and confused flower in a world falling apart, but my good soul will persevere and I will dance with nice kind ice wolves". It was just too much. I couldn't get over the feeling that the author has no idea what real trauma, poverty, isolation and pain are like and what they do to a person.

While the idea of a tidally locked world is fascinating, I find the concept of a temperate zone only being a few kilometres wide with direct sunlight there causing humans to instantly combust and temperatures below minus 100 centigrade a few kilometres into the night side of the planet very poorly thought out. An atmosphere would make the transitional area larger and less extreme. In vacuum yes, but that does leave the question of life open...

Still, a very good story, worth the read.
