  • Glorious arranged marriage scifi epic

    A must read if you love arranged marriage (from different planets!! the culture clashes!), pining, loveable underdogs fighting a large political plot from their modest corners, and a glamorous fascinating gender-neutral scifi setting. The main characters are such likeable, sad idiots, trying to spare the other's feelings and having self esteem issues. There are miscommunication issues preventing them from coming together, but these are all external in source and not their fault. I was rooting for them all the time. Seeing them finally overcome them, and bravely step up and own their recovery is immensely satisfying.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Wish it had leaned heavier into the rom-com

    This was one of my most anticipated reads of this year so far, because when I heard it was compared to Red, White & Royal Blue in space I was just SO STOKED. I don't know that to me that comparison holds, although I did really enjoy it. I love an arranged/fake/forced marriage, and both main characters enter into the marriage out of a sense of duty and assume a lot about the other's motivations, which I think was SO well done between their dual perspectives. A lot of the book is the sort of mystery of Taam's death and who is trying to potentially cover it up, which I'm assuming is the comparison to Ancillary Justice (but I haven't read it yet), and I was slightly less interested in that than the royal romance sub-plot, I think this would've been 5 stars for me if it had leaned heavier into rom-com territory, but it was overall really fun and kept my interest.

    Thanks for your feedback!
