It is women falling in love with women and starships. Many and varied women who are all unique individuals. And while there are several points where letting someone finish a sentence could have been a shortcut in the feels department, the whole yearning thing was really working, so I can forgive it.
Also you can always see why the characters would do what they do, it's not just plot yanking them around, their insecurities are built in and worked through.
The only thing I'm a bit hmmm about was ( Read more... )
But everyone else's happy endings were coolness. I mean you don't usually end up with a happy ending involving (big yet happy spoilers) ( Read more... ) I mean for a start that's more women than you even get in quite a lot of science fiction, even before you get to the eventual configuration.
I am just :-D now and want to tell everyone to go read.
It has a plot and a romance and the plot is necessary to the romance and the romance is necessary to the plot. The whole yearning having cycle is there. And there's many varieties of moments of awesome.
You will probably like this book if you like anything even close to this sort of thing.
The only thing wrong with it is there is only the one of it
and it is from 2013
Also I just saw some Amazon reviews of it, and whoever read the protagonist as a drug addict has the reading comprehension of a squirrel. She's chronically ill with a genetic autoimmune disease that attacks muscles and she controls her condition with medication. If the reviewer didn't understand that then the protagonist's motivation and urgency is going to elude them.
But! No matter what the reviews say, the book makes plenty good sense.
And it is complete in itself, with a satisfying ending, even if that is all we get.
I'll just pout because I like these characters and want to see more stories like this.
