An early review for Scylla and Charybdis is now available at Fantasy Faction:  check it out!

I'm quite pleased with this review.  I'm surprised how much attention the reviewer devotes to the society of Anaea's home station, but I suppose in hindsight, it plays a much bigger role than I originally intended.  We authors often develop a picture of the book that isn't necessarily how a reader approaches it.

Although character is very important in Scylla and Charybdis, I've always thought of it as a Milieu novel.  It's centered around the exploration of the world, and for me and Anaea, that means the world outside her home ... but on the other hand, you can't approach a foreign land without the context of where you've come from.  So in some senses, the space station is the most important setting of all, even if it doesn't get the same number of words devoted (directly) to it.
