Set up as a fantasy novel within a science fiction universe, the novel’s setting, characters and conflicts all manage to blend some very familiar fantasy tropes into this Science Fiction world.

I found the concept to be intriguing and rather refreshing overall. While you’re thrown directly into a strange world, one in which the main character is a stranger as well, you’re tossed a floater, not tied to a cement block. The setting is quickly made clear without dragging you through a load of data dump. The characters, while alien in many ways, are not so drastically different as to lose relatability. And the Plot moves along quickly enough that you don’t feel like you’ve been set adrift.

The romance is a bit rushed, but it doesn’t push you out of the story in a way that you might expect. The characters have rational reasoning behind how they feel and while, I found several of the instances of jealousy to be a smidge farfetched, the romance didn’t trip up the plot overlaying it.
