Publisher's Summary

This first book in a feminist space opera duology follows seven resistance fighters who will free the galaxy from the ruthless Tholosian Empire - or die trying.

When Eris faked her death, she thought she had left her old life as the heir to the galaxy's most ruthless empire behind. But her recruitment by the Novantaen Resistance, an organization opposed to the empire's voracious expansion, throws her right back into the fray.

Eris has been assigned a new mission: to infiltrate a spaceship ferrying deadly cargo and return the intelligence gathered to the Resistance. But her partner for the mission, mechanic and hotshot pilot Cloelia, bears an old grudge against Eris, making an already difficult infiltration even more complicated.

When they find the ship, they discover more than they bargained for: three fugitives with firsthand knowledge of the corrupt empire's inner workings.

Together, these women possess the knowledge and capabilities to bring the empire to its knees. But the clock is ticking: The new heir to the empire plans to disrupt a peace summit with the only remaining alien empire, ensuring the empire’s continued expansion. If they can find a way to stop him, they will save the galaxy. If they can't, millions may die.

Not For Me: I need a tad of science in my scifi

When the writers clearly don't understand what a galaxy is, then my interest dies.

The reader has a nice voice but stumbles noticably from time to time, and in other some other respects sounds amateurish.

I stuck with it for a few chapters. That's all I could manage.

Other readers may be more forgiving, especially if they are looking for a fantasy adventure with science fictiony made up words and trappings.

Badass Women in Space!

I read Seven Devils by Laura Lam and Elizabeth May on ebook back when it was initially released and wanted to get ready for the sequel (Seven Mercies) so I just finished listening to the audio. Christina Traister does a great job with the narration and I really enjoyed it as much the second time around.

The book’s tagline is "feminist space opera" -- it tells the story of a group of female resistance fighters vs a patriarchal empire and it has underlying themes of consent and prejudice. It gets dark at times, but it’s also fun.

There is very detailed political world building, explorations of secret pasts, found family, and a sapphic romance.

It’s the first book in a duology - they wrap up one important thread of the story, but they also leave a few things open in order to establish the path for the next book. Now, I have the sequel Seven Mercies downloaded and am eager to move on to the next part of the story.

I liked it!!!

I approached this as I do any book. Don’t care if the characters are primarily male or female. As a result, I was able to really enjoy the book and I definitely look forward to where the next one will take me!!!

Great Space Adventure

It’s a similar feel to Becky Chamber’s Wayfarer Series. Excited for the upcoming release of the sequel!

Great story

loved the story was engaged and interested the whole way through. The characters had life to them, each with their own flaws and strengths. The plot kept me engage and needing to know what happened next.
