Kate Standish has been on the forest-world of Huginn less than a week and she's already pretty sure her new company murdered her boss. But the little town of mill workers and farmers is more worried about eco-terrorism and a series of attacks by the bizarre, sentient dogs of this planet, than a death most people would like to believe is an accident. That is, until Kate's investigation uncovers a conspiracy which threatens them all.

I really enjoyed this read. It has a bit of everything that one could want. Suspense. Conspiracy. Mystery on several different levels. Wonderfully flawed characters. And although there is a very obvious sub-commentary about the environment and our place in it I did not find it preachy. Looking forward to reading her other works.

I will definitely be watching for what the author writes next. I loved the world (moon) building, the mystery, the alien ecology, the characters, the science... In short, I loved everything about it.

The book has quite a few elements and they all work well together. We've got the outsider, newly arrived, prickly, but curious. We've got the local, standoffish, a bit socially isolated. There are the mysterious sentient -- and violent -- dogs. And then there's the diary of an early settler. Each has a mystery tied to it.

The book is complete, as a standalone novel, though there is room for more in the universe for sure.
