Lina Rather recommends
Winter's Orbit (2021)
(Winter's Orbit, book 1)
Everina Maxwell
"Winter's Orbit manages the incredible feat of being the slow burn 'sad spaceboys in love' romance of your dreams, while also being a gripping political thriller. Maxwell has built a deeply-layered and fascinating universe filled with alien tech, complex imperial politics, and perilous intergalactic diplomacy. I stayed up all night reading, desperately rooting for Kiem and Jainan to finally hold hands and save the day."
Sun-Daughters, Sea-Daughters (2021)
Aimee Ogden
"Sun-Daughters, Sea-Daughters draws you in with its fascinating look at families, gender, and biology in a hauntingly alien far future, before breaking your heart with aching nostalgia and then putting it back together with a bittersweet hope."
