Incredible world building! The aliens are so different and their habits are so clearly written that it's easy to fall headfirst into it all. The plot is very much a traditional quest story, with lots of side stops and random encounters (a couple of which went on for a hair too long). It's a fun, fast story that I really enjoyed. The ending is surprising and exciting. I read it all in one sitting--very cool! I've read some other works by Cambias and he often has a pattern of writing really amazing settings and superb aliens but his human characters sometimes fall a little flat. Arkad and his human companions are a touch underwritten, and they rely a little on adventure tropes for the audience to get to know them. But this is such a plot-driven novel that in the end I didn't care that much. (Copied from Goodreads)
