Ramón Espejo isn’t the kind of character I usually take to. He’s gritty, foul-mouthed, uneducated, and violent. But I liked him. And I liked the way he figures out who he is and what makes life worth living for him.
The world is rich in detail, the aliens true aliens–in thought as well as look, and the plot both surprising and inevitable. A great story. Not quite good enough to make my keeper shelf, but excellent nonetheless.
