    Love conquers all

    Ok, as anyone that regularly reads my reviews knows, I do not read anything about the books before deciding to read them. So this one was a seriously shock to me. But it was definitely worth the read. The political, religious and prejudices that this plot has are all very relevant and hooked me in right away. I adored the outlook that Kaj Deder from Earth has on it all. This was a very good read and I look forward to reading more works from this author in the future.

    Well-written & enjoyable

    This is a well-written, enjoyable Sci-fi romance with an unusual version of Mpreg & it kept my attention. The story-line & plot is well-thought out & written. The author took the time to explain about the “cursed” so the reader is not lost or confused. The unique characters are well-developed & interesting. There is: political issues, religious issues, twists & turns, intrigue, adventure, action, secrets, attractions, emotional turmoil, discrimination, prejudicial treatment, fear, violence, adversity, deceit, conflict, abduction, defiance, determination, some steam, contentment, happiness & a well-deserved gratifying ending.

    A Great Sci-Fi Mpreg!

    ** I WAS GIVEN THIS BOOK FOR MY READING PLEASURE ** Reviewed for Divine Magazine This was an interesting read for me. It's my first book by Angelica Primm and it won't be my last. I thoroughly enjoyed Ostakis and hope that the inclusion of Human Planets Collective on the cover is the promise of more books to come, even if they focus on new planets and different characters. I'd certainly be willing to read more within this world. Ostakis is the story of one man entering a new world and turning it upside down; viewing the laws and struggles of their people with fresh eyes, offering the promise of revolution and change. It's the story of love overcoming class, social status and political boundaries, and the story of a friendship so strong that it can weather all storms. The world building was also really well done. I liked that we weren't overwhelmed by info dumps of what Ostakis was, how it functioned and all that it entailed, right at the start. For a while, I wasn't entirely sure what the world was like and what those like Arlan were – if they were shifters or humans – but things became clear as it went on and it proved to be a clever bit of mystery that kept me wondering and reading, intrigued to find out more. When the truth of the Unspoken and the Cursed was finally revealed, I found it all the more interesting because of the little hints along the way. The story deals sympathetically with the cultural themes of women in power, how intersex people are treated, politics and religion, as well the treatment of aboriginal people by invaders. All subjects are relevant to our world, today, but they were also well explored in the world of Ostakis, showing us as the story developed how this world worked and how it had come to the brink of survival. The interlink between the aboriginals and men like Arlan, creating the Unspoken and the Cursed, was a clever piece of plotting and a great mirror to the prejudices of our own world. Why didn't I give it five stars? For me, there were a few niggles that just kept it shy of the five star mark. 1. It took me a long time to feel comfortable with the story and the writing style. We had to learn most of Ostakis through Kaj's eyes, at first, and didn't really understand the world until Arlan's POV entered. 2. There was quite a bit of repetition, sometimes of entire scenes, sometimes of conversations, to explain the delicate nuances that separated Earth understanding for Kaj, and Ostakis understanding for Arlan and everyone else. I do understand why most of it was necessary, but it did mean that I had to read conversations a second time when a thought process or recollection might have been enough. 3. I also would have liked more of an exploration about changing the laws for how women and aboriginals were treated, at the end. 4. I would also have liked some kind of resolution to the Pib and Arlan friendship, that better suited their love for one another and their future children. I was also surprised by the MPREG storyline, as there was no mention of that in the blurb or in the advertisements I've seen. While I love a good MPREG, I think the author is missing a trick by not advertising it as such; it's a growing market and I'm sure many more people would love to know that there's a sci-fi MPREG out there, with a true intersex character and a storyline that isn't all heat and sex, but is clever and original, while portraying a beautiful romance. ~ Favourite Quotes “I shall love this man to death and beyond for uttering that one sentence.”
