839, Wrapt in Crystal

Genre: SF

I skipped large portions of this book. The story was interesting. Six priestesses are murdered with very few clues left behind, and the solution to the whole thing was intriguing, though the villain appeared out of nowhere. The hero of the story was emotionally detached until near the end. By that point I had long given up on the characters. The tension was never tightened. The denouement was way too long. The narrative at best read like a second draft.
