3.5 stars.

Overall, this was a pretty enjoyable read. Despite there being a few instances of thin plot ("but why wouldn't they just do this?", or "how could that be if earlier they said this?"), the story is fun enough that you are willing to overloo

This is actually a series of two books included in one volume: Don't Bite the Sun, and Drinking Sapphire Wine.

I have to say, I enjoyed the first book better than the second. Lee created a very colorful and strange world here, and she throws the read
