I like it better, honestly. 9 books already out too. Davis is very regular in her publishing output! So far they all appear to be included in my Audible membership, which is nice (all the Falco books were except the penultimate one, I’m curious why that’s the case)
I just (literally a few minutes ago) figured out that at the beginning of this series Albia and her love interest are approximately the same ages as Helena and Falco were at the end of his series, which is an interesting choice for Next Generation. And that makes Helena only 12 years older than Albia, which I am having some trouble with. I guess I could have figured that out back in The Jupiter Myth if I had been paying attention, but I did not.
Cat Valente’s audiobooks are pure joy. Space Opera included. I’m so excited for the sequel. And for Charlie Jane.
(Apologies if my posts are too positive - it’s been a really rough year and I’m so glad to be happy about anything. )
I think if bufffistas are allowed to be extra positive about anything it’s books.
Y’all speaking of gushing—I almost never like contemporary lesbian romances. They’re just so often bad. Or unrealistic. And usually not hot.
But I just devoured one and it was great! Satisfaction Guaranteed, by Karelia Stetz-Waters. Two thumbs up.
I have started Victoria Goddard's The Hands of The Emperor and am really enjoying it - someone described it as "The Goblin Emperor from Csevet's POV, set in the South Pacific" and they aren't far off.
Ooh that sounds very interesting Amy!!
Mm, I like The Hands of the Emperor so much. Pops into my head as something to contemplate pretty often
ETA: ooh, novella prequel I haven’t read! Petty Treasons
Hands of the Emperor looks so good--I wish they had it in trade paper.
