I wanted more information, when the council gathered, after they approved the relationship it was no longer a serious story to me. it was treated to simply and childlike.

This is the first time I have listened to Martha Wells who made the female a heroine and traded places where the men usually are (the hero and savior) and I loved it. it was provocative and fascinating. waiting for more. it is a good way to get out of the world of reality and into the world of what could be, more of the way we believed as a child
