As I was reading this, it felt oddly familiar. I don’t think I’ve read it before, but you never know. Regardless, it took a little while to grab me, and there was a little too much detail about future archaeology for my tastes, but underneath all that it was a really interesting and fun story to get on board with. I did think it was interesting that events kept piling on to the point that Jarra herself believed her deception, but then when she did reveal all it was slightly underwhelming - having built up to what could happen all book, she was just accepted. Having said that, it does tend to be the case that when you get to know the person underneath, any sense of racism you might have can fall away.
