Marseguro by Edward Willett

Marseguro by Edward Willett is a science fiction novel that deals with the issues of religion and genetic engineering. Marseguro a Waterworld is colonized by a crew of human/fish hybrids created by a scientist. Earth is controlled by a tyrannical religious movement that wants to cleanse the universe of such an abomination. All of the characters here have well thought out motivations and there's excellent characterization. I liked that even the protagonists are flawed in some way. This isn't black vs. white there are shades of gray. Lots of ethical decisions to be made by individuals.
