    GreenVelvet: It's the sequel - haven't finished yet but so far I'm loving it as much as the first. Such an inventive world full of thought-provoking scenarios.

Utopia-seeking humans exploring a world full of alien biology. The book covers a century or so in half a dozen parts, each from a different point-of-view character in a different generation, beginning before they realise the plants are sentient and journeying through the development of a sometimes-uneasy alliance with one in particular. For self-named Pacifists there's an ironic (but ultimately unsurprising) amount of violence in their internal relations but they do hold relatively true to their principles of living in harmony with their environment: both humans and their alien ally have seen the devastation of environmental collapse and are determined to avoid repeating the mistakes of the past. The lingering question is the extent to which such change is possible, on either the individual or the species level. Especially when they end up after all at war....

This is a gorgeous delve into an alien world. Every viewpoint character has an immediately distinct voice. The plant the humans ally with is ambiguously sinister: seeing things from its point of view in some ways detracts from that but in others enhances the theme and gives us a deeper insight into the broader ecosystem the humans have barely scratched the surface of.

This book was nothing like I expected and kept me on my toes the entire way. I generally try to avoid spoilers, but it's difficult to discuss this in light of how little information we get from the teaser. I'll try not to give away too much, but if you want to discover this on your own, know that you're in for a ride and read no further.

I was unaware that this book followed many generations on Pax. As such, I almost bailed during the first chapter because it dragged a bit. But as soon as I hit the second and realized what Burke was doing, I was spellbound. This storytelling. For real. So much to piece together between the POV, the implicit commentary on cultural heritage and ownership (on many levels), and the passage of a collective knowledge. This story has a lot going on, and I think as readers, we are also a thread in it...how we choose to side, whom we choose to trust...because I sure didn't know it til the end. Or maybe I still don't. I wondered how invested I'd become, and the answer is SO MUCH. I could hear the Glassmakers singing Uncle Higgins' song, and I broke.

It was not a perfect book. As I mentioned, it took me a little bit of a push to get into it, and there were plot points that I felt needed to be explored more or brought back into the mix later in the book. I also missed the intrigue of puzzling out the generational divides from one chapter to the next once the book gets about halfway through and stays on a more immediate timeline for the duration. And lastly, the word "fippokat" and "fippolion" (I guess mainly the prefix "fippo") royally got on my nerves. Personal irk, really, but it took me out of the story and seemed uncharacteristically silly for the characters to choose that as the breeds' names (yes, I get that the kats are silly creatures, but still).


All the same, this was a provocative story and a heart-pounding page-turner. I could never guess what might happen next because of its twists. I will certainly direct more care to my houseplants. I see a small stand of bamboo in my future...you can be sure I will be playing Stevie Wonder for it.

Many thanks to Tor and NetGalley for the advanced copy. ( )

Finished for a book club. It was agony. ( )

What's not to like about a sci-fi novel where one of the central characters is an intelligent bamboo? Slightly longer review here: http://paulsamael.com/blog/micro-reviews-april-2019- ( )
