This is one of those books that while well written, with some really great characters, but the actual rules of this world don't make a whole lot of sense.

First - I really liked Cara in this story. She is an incredibly interesting character. The characters surrounding her also well written, from her handler, Dell, to her sister. The premise of the book - multiverses where you can only visit if your version in that universe is dead, is an interesting one. The themes of the choices made vs luck was really well done.

Unfortunately, the author sacrificed world building for the greater story. For example, it doesn't make a lot sense that guns are outlawed, to the point where nobody even knows how to make them. Or that one man is given control of the whole project. There were a few other problems with the story that I found myself rolling my eyes. ( )

Ok...I was very intrigued when reading the description of this book, then seeing all the award nominations coming out while I was reading. I've always liked the multiverse concept and this one sounded like it was going to be great. The beginning "world-building" was interesting but then it started to get flat for me after that. As much detail that was given and all the intricacies woven throughout, it just didn't deliver that 4-5 star roller-coaster I was expecting. I can see how many readers would like this a lot, just not me.

Thank you to NetGalley and Random House Publishing Group - Ballantine for the ARC. ( )

This is one of those reads that has you thinking you know what sort of ride you're in for and by the third chapter you realize that you've severely miscalculated... you have no idea where you're heading so you strap in and pray for the best... it wasn't... by any means... your standard Multi Dimensional Traipsing fare. There were most definitely triggers for domestic violence both implied and incurred as well as drug use, murder and brutal treatment of anyone and everyone... no one is 100% safe, not children or the elderly BUT it isn't graphic or gorey or horrific, just disturbing... I'm not condoning, just relaying.

That aside, this book was twisty and turny and all sorts of unique, messed up, hard-hitting exposition. It had an expertly crafted, slowly teased out, unfiltered, unapologetic character reveal. Each dribbled fact we were given felt like a dirty secret earned and even though some were freely given in the beginning and some were easily sussed out, they weren't any less delicious.... the rest felt hard won and masterfully doled out... little breadcrumbs leading us to the character's truist self. We learn as she does about her background, morals, self-checks, stopgaps and core values. We learn what she is/has been/will be willing to do to keep "safe", what she was willing to overlook in that pursuit, who/what she will allow herself to ultimately become and it is exciting AND, in the end, extremely rewarding.

The writing was solid... the world(s) development far exceeded that and THAT'S saying something. I stayed up into the wee-ist of hours craving... absolutely fiending to know what happened next and I regret nothing. I might not have known where the story was going but it turns out that I was in good hands the whole way... what a ride... what a great example of how streamlined and unencumbered Scifi can be and ohhhhhh what a satisfying ending can look like!

Overall:
This book shows much love and for the LGBTQ community and showcased an extremely complex, well developed POC MC... I loved the inclusivity all around.

"It is only one world in infinite universes where this impossible happiness exists, but that is what makes it so valuable ."

That about sums up my feelings for this book. I highly, 100%, both hands in the air, reccomend this read!

~ Enjoy ( )

"We rotate. This is my first time here. The man who used to come retired. The girl who came before me was… let go."
"You make it sound like a job," Nik Nik says.
"It is. My job is the only reason I'm here."
They all seem deflated by that. I'm not sure what they thought I was, but they find employed a letdown. ( )

UMMM the multiverse and a queer love story! This book exceeded all expectations I had of it. So beautiful and thought out. I was laughing and crying and on the edge of my seat. ( )

Despite occasional melodramatics and some hazy political structures, this immersive, original adventure is sure to please readers looking for smart, diverse science fiction. Johnson is a writer to watch.
