posts at the war front She s fallen on hard times however and also works as a bounty hunter bringing in thieves or those dealing in illegal gene trading Lately she s doing a bit of that black market gene transporting as well After serving a prison sentence she gives up the independent work and recruits a crew When Nyx is called to the palace by the ueen she and her team are given a job they can t refuse hunting down an alien woman who has disappeared likely into the enemy territory of Chenja Rhys is a magician and immigrant from Chenja where women wear the veil and men are head of household When Nyx is recruiting for her team Rhys agrees to work with herThe plotting says heist but the setting says Middle East in space It seems this world began centuries ago when it was settled by colonists from another world Their world is at the edge of the space routes and as they ve elected not to modernize their spaceport off world visitors are rare leaving the colonists isolated For over a century Nasheen and Chenja have been at war Although very different culturally they share a similar religious foundation all consider themselves People of the Book being ill versed in world religions I only thought of People of the Book not of the germane monotheistic Abrahamic religions This is one book I would have benefited by reading on Kindle with Wikipedia at hand Nyx disenchantment with her own religion and Rhys dedication to his provide an interesting contrast and social commentary Social and religious divisions are further complicated by a marginalized class of people who have carry shapeshifting genetics She didn t much like the stink and crowd of cities but you could lose yourself in a city a lot easily than you could out in farming communities like Mushirah She had run to the desert and the cities for anonymity And to die for GodNone of that had worked out very wellNasheen is a matriarchal government and culture men are sent off to war and only allowed home if they reach forty Sexuality is open and lesbian relationships are normalized although male homosexuality is still somewhat hidden I was half expecting the Women s Studies 1o1 version of matriarchy but instead Hurley is far nuanced Male or female everyone has mixed motives varied upbringings and ethics or lack thereof drive them towards their decisions As is often noted everyone is fighting the war in their own way The preponderance of bugs in the magicians uarters made his blood sing as if he was attuned to a bit of everything able to touch and manipulate pieces of the world He felt alive here than he had anywhere else in his life among those who spent their days coming up with new and interesting ways to kill his peopleThen there are the bugs a world building aspect that takes the story to a whole new level of uniueness Some people magicians have the ability to manipulate the bugs and their energy Some of the technology is hybrid organic and the bugs play a role in powering vehicles lighting rooms and in healing Magicians are the only men granted an exception to serving at the war frontIt s a complicated set up with a non English foundations and Hurley doesn t handhold I thought it flowed reasonably well given the range of components but it was the kind of wind that pushes you a little harder making for an exhilarating sail The first forty pages are virtually an independent short story the development of the larger plot comes later with roots in the prologue The story works in the China Mi ville sense and I m thinking of Embassytown here so take that for what it s worth people who don t read much in sci fi or fantasy may wish for explanation and those who have little tolerance for gender dynamics might find themselves irritated I thought the relatively straightforward plot balanced the complicated setting and ethical issues nicely It was engrossing interesting and occasionally melancholic Nyx is truly a belle dame sans merci she has a very bloody culturally sanctioned job but her lack of compassion also extends to herself It reminded me of the torturer Glokta in Abercrombie s The First Law series or the lead in Best Served Cold It provides an avenue for compassionate development of a deeply flawed humanWithout doubt God s War deserves its Nebula nomination as well as the Arthur C Clarke and British Sci Fi Association nominations That said I m not sure everyone would enjoy it But if you are looking for complicated unusual fantasy with a fast moving plot give this a try I ll certainly be moving on to the next in the

    “Nyx sold her womb somewhere between Punjai and Faleen on the edge of the desert”The opening line in a book is the author’s first impression As a writer I’ve definitely found the first and last line a beast to get right Other times those beginning sentences are my favorite It all depends As a reader I will often get a vibe whether I’m going to love a book or not before I even open the cover and read
