This takes place far away in time and space, apparently - but certainly reflects modern mindsets and issues. For those concerned about the corruption of religious traditions for material gain and/or the power corporations have over governmental structures, this is definitely a mood.

If nothing else, the art is beyond beautiful. But I also thought the story was, and I'm looking foward to move.

 I really do not like this art style very much. The scenery looks great, but the actual characters seem off. I know they're supposed to be aliens and not humans, but with the style, it feels like their features have shifted slightly every time they're shown at a different angle, which since I'm face-blind is absolute hell. I figured I wouldn't continue the series just because of that. But I finished the first volume and for some reason, I found it gripping and want to keep reading. I have no idea why, either. Space nuns are cool, but the actual space monastery got very little page time and probably won't get any in the rest of the series. The plot is fairly standard "protagonists discover people in high places are incredibly corrupt and have to do something with that information while said people are trying to kill them," which can be good but isn't necessarily unique. I can't say I particularly liked either of the protagonists, and the story was just difficult enough to follow that I can't even remember anything about the secondary characters. But whatever the reason, it was a quick read and I actually do want to read more.
