Or, of course, the opposite, that they dislike the author and want to give it a low score despite knowing nothing about the book itself.(less)

Holy sh*t, y'all. And let me repeat: holy sh*t.

I have to start this review with how I heard about this book. I had the amazing opportunity to meet with Ann Leckie twice during SIBA18, both during the Rise of Alt SFF panel and again during the moveable feast of authors, where she had 90 seconds to tell my table about her first foray into fantasy. I loved the way she summarized her book and I have no doubt her synopsis will sound way, way better than anything I could pen, so I'm going to unapologe

Three stars because it took me a while to get into the style and the end seemed rushed. But that said, I enjoyed the main characters and world building. Fantasy isn’t really my thing but sign me up for whatever Ann Leckie puts out next.
