Not a review, just some thoughts for personal reference. Spoilers.
A religious group left their homeland on a tidally-locked planet and traveled around the world to a land without the moon. Generations later, a priest hires a ship to return her to the near-mythical land, hoping to find a place where her people will fit in. However, the homecoming is not what she would have hoped--her ancestral homeland is a patriarchal society with a rigid, fanatical religion based on the moon. Nonconformity is not tolerated, and the the zealots have apparently conquered all of the neighboring lands. Conversion at swordpoint. The travelers are arrested, but manage to escape back to their ship, but not before they are attacked by soldiers who apparently have firearms, weapons unknown to the travelers. They set sail for home with the threat that they will be followed--and conquered.
This was an interesting set-up, but the novelette was simply too short to do it justice. It felt like the outline for the first book in a series rather than a complete work, especially as the ending was so inconclusive. It was a miss for me.
