Paul Park's Nebula-nominated novel is an extraordinary, challenging work about a human colony on an alien world.

Celestis, settled by humans fleeing from a socially decaying Earth, is riven by racial strife. Those conquered aliens who can afford it surgically and pharmacologically alter themselves to appear more human. Simon, a human diplomat, is taken hostage by alien rebels and falls in love with Katherine, an altered alien. But, Katherine, cut off from her medications, rapidly begins to transform back into a creature of alien needs and desires.
