Justina Robson’s new novel is the story of a mother and her two teenage daughters. But it is also a story that features an unknowable alien race of shapeshifters, an archaeological dig that holds a secret that people must die for, a matriarchal society, a world where magic may be technological and technology magical and a war that threatens to bring an end to everything.
Justina’s artful plotting, elegant prose and razor sharp ideas combine all the elements of the story into a gripping SF novel that echoes the themes of both Margaret Atwood and Gene Wolfe. But while the ideas and themese are rich, once you’re immersed in the tale of this world without a name it’s the twists in the plot that will keep you locked in until the final mystery is revealed.
