Again, under any other circumstance, I probably would have loved the hell out of it, but at the moment, I just couldn't. If you are the publisher or author and feel that they do not properly reflect the range of media opinion now available, send us a message with the mainstream reviews that you would like to see added.

Everina Maxwell has a wonderful way of weaving a story with the perfect balance of feelings/emotions and vivid detail for the reader to imagine each scene. While this is perhaps not a flaw of the book itself, per se, I simply found it hard to fully sympathize with Surit when he was untangling his feelings surrounding his mother’s pension, the military, and what it truly is. And among the rubble is a treasure both terrible and unimaginably powerful, one that upends a decades-old power struggle, and begins a war. The two of them really made the book for me - I liked them straight away and was rooting for them the whole way through.Characters are well defined, within each scene, and sympathetic enough, from scene to scene (even if the big picture of their interactions and motivations fails for me).

Excellent again, I was so absorbed in the story I had to ration myself so that I didn't finish it too quickly. Thank you so much to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with a digital ARC in exchange for my honest opinion. Well-paced and deftly written, it's one of the most enjoyable space (or planetary) opera romances that I've had the pleasure to read, and I look forward to seeing more of Maxwell's work in the years to come. Using it on the wrong person in the street might get you a warning from law enforcement, but in here, it might get you shot.I was a little bit nervous about Ocean’s Echo because of how much I loved Winter’s Orbit, but wow did Ocean’s Echo blow all my expectations out of the water. Ocean's Echo is a stand-alone, romantic space adventure, set in the same universe as Everina Maxwell's hit debut, Winter's Orbit.

They weren’t slinging around mental commands at the bar or anything, but Tennal could see it: architects gave off an aura, if you knew how to look for it, like light radiating from a star. She lives in Canada, and her work has appeared in The Mitre, Canada’s oldest student-run literary journal. Tennal really struggles with his own mind—I’m pretty sure he’d be some form of neurodivergent in our world—and his internal conflict in the book largely follows his journey as he grows to be more comfortable with himself and in bonds with other people. Seeing their skills complement each other, seeing their temperaments help balance one another; Surit never thinking that Tennal was too much; all of the pining and angst and wish-something-real-could-happen-but-it-can’t … Perfection. There, it is also expected that he will be “synced” with an Architect, a process that creates a permanent mental bond so that the Reader can be controlled.

The boss might refer to any number of people in the city of Sanura, but in here, it meant the leader of this gambling ring, the one who owned this hotel.

The payoff is lovely and satisfying for both the relationship between Tennal and Surit AND the complex plot Maxwell puts together.I haven’t read many books about telepathy, but the premise of a mind reader and mind controller conscripted to a galactic army, forced to permanently sync their thoughts together?
