Brilliant but troubled Livia Kodaly is Teven's only hope against invaders both human and superhuman who would destroy its fragile ecologies and human diversity.

This novel seemed to bounce around a little bit as far as plot focus. It dealt with the esoteric nature of religion at one point, then the story made a leap into existentialism, followed by the machinations of politics. In summary, it was slow at the beginning but fast-paced in the middle and towards the end.
