Thank you to NetGalley and Interstellar Flight Press for an eARC of this title.

There are a lot of things I loved about this story. For one, I loved that it was a queernorm world where polyamorous relationships are the norm. I love this because we have characters with multiple different sexualities and pronouns. I loved the variety and how all pronouns and relationships were completely accepted. I love stories where there is no questioning of sexualities, identities, and relationships. It makes them so incredibly welcoming and nice.

I really liked the dynamics between the characters. They were all varied and they all had complicated pasts and interactions. It was very nice to see characters that were complicated and flawed and relatable. I think that it made the plot more interesting because the pasts and interactions between characters impacted how they handled the twists and turns within the story.

I overall enjoyed the story. I think the plot was ended and cleaned up a little bit quickly, but other than that I really enjoyed it. It was fun and exciting. I would definitely recommend this title!

Rating: 4/5 stars
