Kathleen O'Neal Gear: Ice Orphan (2022, DAW) 5 stars

Engrossing read with interesting combo of elements

5 stars

How do you blend prehistoric cultures of other homo species with climate discussions and quantum wave theories?

This is how.

The story engrossed me, and I wound up blazing through it in two sittings. I loved how Gear brought forward different perspectives of viewing the world's different ways of belief, and the values of stories.

I thought some parts of the story were going a very different direction than they wound up, but I still think it was a great story over all.
