Tanyana is among the highest ranking in her far-future society - a skilled pionner, able to use a mixture of ritual and innate talent to manipulate the particles that hold all matter together. But an accident brings her life crashing down around her ears. She is cast down amongst the lowest of the low, little more than a garbage collector. But who did this to her, and for what sinister purpose? Her quest to find out will take her to parts of the city she never knew existed, and open the door to a world she could never have imagined.

A very refreshing read. Marketed as Steampunk, but didn't really feel that was that accurate. The characters were engaging, the story solid and the voice inclusive. A long book but always excited to pick it up to read what happens next. a few sex scenes that were tasteful but unneccessary. Found little quirky details along the way that were both humourous and refreshing, almost bordering on character ADD. (eg Tanyana feeling her suit poking her under her arm in the middle of a conversation). Am looking foward to Book 2.

Very weird, but well-written enough that I'll read the next one.
