[Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.]

I struggle a bit in terms of how to describe this book, except to say I’d peg it as a quintessential space opera set in a dystopian future. It’s intriguing and entertaining, and it has enough twists to keep a reader interested all the way through. But I’m settling on a three-star rating because as I sit here now thinking back on it, the story isn’t one that really stands out. It is what it is in the moment, but it doesn’t stay with you like some more profound stories tend to do. And that’s fine; sometimes you want a book just like that, and this is it.
