Renata Ghali believed in Lee Suh-Mi's vision of a world far beyond Earth, calling to humanity. A planet promising to reveal the truth about our place in the cosmos, untainted by overpopulation, pollution, and war. Ren believed in that vision enough to give up everything to follow Suh-Mi into the unknown. More than twenty-two years have passed since Ren and the rest of the faithful braved the starry abyss and established a colony at the base of an enigmatic alien structure where Suh-Mi has since resided, alone. All that time, Ren has worked hard as the colony's 3-D printer engineer, creating the tools necessary for human survival in an alien environment, and harboring a devastating secret. Ren continues to perpetuate the lie forming the foundation of the colony for the good of her fellow colonists, despite the personal cost. Then a stranger appears, far too young to have been part of the first planetfall, a man who bears a remarkable resemblance to Suh-Mi. The truth Ren has concealed since planetfall can no longer be hidden. And its revelation might tear the colony apart.… (mais)

    Aquila: There's something very similar going on with the first person narration of these two books. And they're both great reads!

Reason read; British author challenge. This is SF. It is the author's first SF novel. Setting is off planet, the main character is "keeping a secret" and has issues, so it is also about trauma and mental illness. Issues covered include; environment, recycling, recreational drug use, various sexual partners. Technology in the book includes the 3 D printer, networking, retinal displays. The people are cult like; God’s City creates a seed for the people, which is what their new religion is based on. Apparently Suh-Mi is up there with God, and is sending the Seed down to her people. Except it’s actually Mack putting the Seed there every year. The colony is built on a lie. The ending is disappointing for most readers but for, I was glad it came to an end. This book contains offensive language, sexual content but it is part of the story if you choose to read it. It has some similarities to The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell. ( )

Although technically well-written, I felt a bit cheated by the ending. ( )

This was quite an interesting book! First, the protagonist is a colored woman. She is competent. Before long, it becomes clear that she is lesbian, and then, it turns out she has a mental disorder. Any one of those things would have made for an unusual protagonist, let alone all of them!
The story is interesting as well. A colony of people living on a strange planet at the foot of what they call God's city. What has happened at the first planetfall? What is that city about?
There are answers of a sort at the end, even though part of the end is open as well. As the answers I got were to the questions that mattered to me, that was fine. I did feel that the twists to the story at the end were a bit disjointed. All of a sudden, the whole story veered in another direction. I felt like the whole story was a setup to get to the ending, but that took too long at the beginning, and then sped up too fast at the end,with an unexpected change of direction, and all of a sudden you're there, and you don't know what just happened to you.

So, if Mack had told the truth about Suh's death, the colony would have fallen apart? But why?

Hoarding is about as interesting as drug addiction or alcoholic hangovers.

And why is God's place so boring? And why did no one ever see Ren moving outside the colony?

Suh's son is the only intriguing character. ( )

This was a rather strange story and I liked it. It reminded me of Annihilation both in the way the people get involved with a totally bewildering alien ecosystem, and in the way there's an unexplained but creepy backstory. I don't even mind the way that the ending was unresolved. It seems completely appropriate. Other reviews have complained about all these things but I'm comfortable with ambiguity and think that was a major theme of the book. And oh yes! I loved the cover art: if you read the physical book be sure to look at the detail. ( )
