  • How war reveais who we are

    This is a hard one to write. Not because I didn’t like it, which I did, but because it’s hard to put everything I’m thinking into words. There is a war being fought across time. Red is under orders of the Agency, a technologically driven faction, while Blue serves the Garden, a Nature-bent fighting power. These two agents find themselves thwarting each other's plans and changing the world to get closer to their side's desired outcome. And all is good until a letter is found and read. And so Red and Blue start exchanging letters, taunting and pushing each other. Soon that exchange starts taking a turn as more personal details are being revealed and the “friendly enemy” relation turns into a more romantic one. But throughout this exchange there’s also the pervasive fear of being found by their superiors and being deemed traitors, a fear that grows as a strange shadow starts following and stealing the destroyed remains of the letters. This might seem like a simple plot but it’s a lot more complex. I'm just trying to avoid spoilers. Concerning the book structure, I have to be honest: books in letter format are not usually something I look forward to- However, in this particular case it’s an amazing way to tell the story and to keep things moving along. Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone do an amazing job telling a story of how feelings evolve and how sometimes the more people might seem different from us, the closer and the more likely they are to understanding who we really are.

  • Intriguing

    I loved this book. The intertwining of the characters, the intriguing scenario. Excellent if you are a fan of weird and wondeful sci fi

  • Heart-wrenchingly Beautiful

    Exquisite prose, emotional turmoil and a horizon clash of cerulean and scarlet.

  • Unusual love story

    The two protagonists speak their love into existence via unusual letters. Recently I heard the remark that all letter writing is a form of time travel, since you are writing for someone living in the future from you. This is like that, only way more so. And not just in the future. It is filled with stunning language. The story is relatively uncomplicated, but the language gives it a literary feel
