This book was everything I was looking for. I loved reading Damaya’s, Essun’s, and Syenite’s chapters and the revelation that they were all one person. The ending definitely left me needing answers so I am genuinely excited to start on book 2.

Interesting and quirky. I didn’t want to put this one down, and the quotes at each issue set the tone nicely. The artwork was mostly great. Very colorful! And everyone had the thickest eyebrows. They were like slabs of bacon. A unique stylistic choice.

Also, the costume designs were equally regal and futuristic. Please give me Syzn’s coat and cape. Jo also has a lovely array of different hairstyles. Yes, she gets to switch it up. c:

I thought Farsector would be just another space fantasy, but there were a lot of real-world social issues (police brutality, peaceful protest vs riots, wait for change or take it yourself, drug addiction stigma, voting rights racism, political unrest, etc) here. Everything felt like a mystery with a hardened tough detective who can’t hide their soft side.

Although I mainly read for fun or escapism these days, I thought the real-life elements made Jo well-rounded with a strong sense of character. She just wants justice but has had a hard time making it happen. Her previous experiences and background are what makes her who she is. Because of that, she brings a different perspective as a Green Lantern, especially as a black (American; N.K Jemisin loves New York with her entire soul) woman.

Last thing: would you rather be paid in cat memes or dog memes? Dogs all the way for me! Who’s a good boy?

I liked this book substantially more than the first one. This may be in large part because it is a romance (where the other most certainly was not)!

Jemisin said that the world was inspired by the Egyptians, but that the barbarians are inspired by the Anasazi (Native Americans of Arizona). I'm surprised by this. I would have thought she would have stuck with Arab influences, and looked to the Bedouin.

A lot of the book centers around the balance of power in romantic partnership between men and women. The book might be considered feminist in advocating for a more balanced place (although I don't think you could call it radical feminism).

The dream world is fascinating. Always a rich mine for fiction.
