Happily, it seems to be the book immediately following Daughter of Elysium, however, it has also been some time since I've read Daughter, so it took me a while to remember what I'd learned from Daughter about the characters, races, and planets that were also mentioned in The Children Star.

There are also some interesting thoughts about various obsessions over purity within religious orders.
I really enjoyed this book. Its slowly gathering momentum made it very difficult to put down in the second half! Highly recommended. A little difficult - not for the reader like me who can only read a few pages a day - but intriguing, original, worthwhile.

The mystery of the plot did take priority, and the development of the characters was done less well. Here at Walmart. Your email address will never be sold or distributed to a third party for any reason. Due to the high volume of feedback, we are unable to respond to individual comments.
