Dark Water's Embraceby Stephen Leigh
Winner of the Specturm Award. Often compared to Ursula Le Guinn’s ground-breaking "The Left Hand of Darkness," "Dark Water’s Embrace" is a fascinating look at issues of human (and alien) sexuality. Stephen Leigh creates a rich world with elaborate care and uses this alien backdrop to delve into issues of survival, sexuality and the meaning of life itself.

This was a great book! I loved the story, it mixes fantasy of the Miccail and the Science fiction of the Humans in a deep and encapturing story. It also addresses prejudices that we have today, dealing with gender. This is a must Read!
I never enjoyed science fiction until I picked this book up one afternoon. Within moments of reading it, I could not put it down. A complex story of identity, gender, and change, 'Dark Water's Embrace' swallows you up and doesn't let go. Most importantly, it makes you think and feel. Old stigmas are peeled away and examined in a rich story of personal growth, relationships, and understanding. If there is one problem with this story is that it ends. These characters are so intoxicating, you never want to say goodbye to them.
