The Disappeared

The Disappeared - Kristine Kathryn Rusch The opening Retrieval Artist novel sets the stage in high fashion for what follows. Rusch is not just world building, she's Universe building and she builds not just people and planets but cultures. The culture clashes at the heart of this novel kept me rapt with interest. The characterizations as with the book I read prior to this (book 3 in the series) is fantastic and the tension and pacing masterfully done. I can see why this series is so popular and cannot wait to read the other books.
