Ninefox Gambit - Yoon Ha Lee

Rereading some of the first chapters helped, although the only way the officer competition makes sense is to have an excuse for Cheris to volunteer to host Jedao. And even then it's pretty weak. I mean, how do the officers fall for it?

 

The rest of the book has gotten pretty intense, with the insane general messing with Cheris's head while still apparently helping her. Maybe. You get the feeling that he's playing his own game that may or may not coincide with her goals.

 

I'm not sure if the "reports" from the heretical region are giving too much away though...
