Really enjoyed this. Hurley's far-future novel sees a number of Islamically-inflected societies locked in a centuries-old holy war on a distant desert planet. Refreshingly, the novel's focus isn't on the war (although it does inflect and affect everything that goes on in the novel) but on a woma...
