Okay, so if you like to laugh then this is the book for you. It's not all laughs though. There are some genuinly touching, human moments (between characters that are not human at all). It all blends together so seamlessly, going from something that makes the reader laugh out loud, to just smile at the character interaction. This is a great prequel to Cait's other book, Life in the 'Cosm, and gives great backstory to two characters from that book who truly deserved to get their own to star in.

Are you interested in reading a space opera that centres a queer romance and a gang of diverse friends who are alien (in the sci-fi sense) but with whom you can totally relate? That is touching at some moments and hilarious at others? That is an example of pro-peace military sci-fi? That is sweeping but also filled with exquisite detail? That is both lighthearted and serious, and doesn't take the easy way out? Then check out Cait Gordon's The Stealth Lovers. You won't be sorry!

What's not to love in this book? Xax and Viv are fabulous, the plot is amazing and it's so very funny. I loved everything about this book from start to finish. Xax and Viv are the characters I most remember from Life in the 'Cosm and I'm so thrilled that we get a book with their story. Read this book if you want to laugh and cry and cheer. This book touches the heart in so many ways. A must read!

I had the pleasure of reading an ARC of this novel and there are times I was howling with laughter. A great mix of comedy, space opera, and some romance. I am NOT a romance reader, AT ALL. I run away from romance books as fast as possible most of the time. Really, I highly recommend this book.

My favourite characters from life in the 'cosm have a book of their own and I am so ridiculously happy with it. Witty banter, exciting battles, and interesting characters beyond the main pair.
A space opera worth reading.

A truly delightful prequel to Life in the 'Cosm! Full of humour and suspense, I definitely recommend it!
