Enjoyable read, with a haiku at the start of each chapter.
A futuristic setting on another planet Renga, where technology doesn't work . Nikta is a chimera or kem, a breed of human who in prior generations were engineered with panther DNA to enable survival on Renga's harsh landscape.
She enjoys her job as a post runner, but misses her twin who denies his kem heritage.
She travels to the city where the poor living standards of kems shock her and the racial prejudice of the regs (regular humans) infuriate her. Dangers lurk in the city and her job has suddenly become a lot riskier. Loved the fact that Nikta's DNA and magic abilities gave her an edge.
