A fascinating and finely written exploration of the human and the alien. Brilliantly written; an excellent book that I struggled to put down. Hidden Sun draws you into a strange and evocative world, both alien and oddly familiar. Compelling characters, intrigue and weird science there are few authors capable of writing science fantasy this well. Extraordinary world-building, with a hardcore, violent poetry to the writing. Jaine Fenn continues to be a star of new fantasy. A great talent. One of the most original voices in contemporary fantasy.
