WesternSFA
Embassytown
by China Mieville
Del Rey, $16.00, 345pp
Release Date: January 13, 2012
Mr. Mieville is the author of Kraken and Perdito Street Station

Humans have colonized a distant planet, home to the Ariekei, whose language is unique to the universe. Avice Brenner Cho returns to Embassytown when politics fracture the fragile balance between humans and aliens. Avice cannot speak the Ariekei but she long ago became a living figure of speech. Now she is torn between many loyalties, her husband, the system she can no longer trust and the language which speaks through her.

This is an original filled with subversive ideas, a word-puzzle with a rich scheme of language. It's a page turner. Enjoy. ~~ Pam Allan
