Very unusual and interesting premise. Keggar is a real world with real problems which its people solve in a very pragmatic unsentimental fashion. I adore Eileen—her growth develops naturally, the hormonal explanation makes a lot of sense and even partly explains why our own politicians are such dickheads.
Very enjoyable and satisfying story. The writing is a tiny bit stilted, compared to that in the others I’ve read by this author. Perhaps a revision after 6 months would help smooth that out? I’d also love to see the cover pics inside the PDF.
