really liked it

A science fiction novel which has been compared to Jane Austen, if Jane Austen were writing about a young linguist running away from her position as sister and unwilling heir to humanity’s greatest leader (a former rebel who has been rewarded with power by Earth’s alien overlords), and who ends up stranded on an interdicted alien planet and adopted by a nomadic matriarchal horse tribe led by a man who is basically his culture’s equivalent to Genghis Khan or Alexander the Great in his ambition to conquer his world. This is probably a terrible description and it’s a long book, but one I can’t recommend highly enough.
