God's War


I was really surprised by this book. It had just the right amount of plot progression, character development, and action to make it a fast-paced, exciting read. It's about a planet with an Islam-like religion. This is a big difference from your run of the mill science fiction or fantasy where you have a very European-like world with a Pagan-like pantheon, or even something that resembles Christianity. Two nations with some differences in their interpretation of their holy text are at war for so long, no one remembers the cause. It makes for some terrific world building and characters. I really enjoyed this book and was able to read it in two days while recovering from a slight back injury. It was nominated for a slew of awards, including the Nebula and the Gaylactic Spectrum Awards.
