Review by: Tsana Dolichva on Oct. 28, 2011 :
An excellent hard SF story about a human mission on an alien world with sentient life. I enjoyed the depth of the main character and particularly liked the reveal moment at the end when she worked out what was happening. The undercurrent of ethical dilemma (should humans be interfering? Were they doing more harm than good?) played out well.
