Obligations Kindle Edition
Obligations is at its heart a story about the myths of childhood and how they color Morgan's ability to relate to herself.
It is a gender confused story about trying to live in one culture while relearning her humanity without losing herself.
About being two-spirit and walking between worlds against a backdrop of Space Opera sci-fi that showcases the after effects of planetary war and manifest destiny.
Originally written in 1994, "Obligations" speaks to the writer's struggle to find her science fiction voice after publishing romance books and was used as her primary writing sample during her career as a ghost writer.

This book mostly follows Morgan, a Taiwanese-born young woman, snatched with a handful of other young people from an alley in an American city and thrown into the galactic slave market. The story jumps backward and forward in time, using flashbacks and current happenings to follow Morgan's experiences as she struggles to find a place for herself in a completely alien culture.
I found the book very interesting, and while the alien names can sometimes be confusing, the alien culture and society feel whole and complete. Once I started reading this book, I had to stay up until after 2 am reading, until I had finished it!
