I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)

Very solid SciFi-Adventure.

Empress Game  - Rhonda Mason

I enjoyed this story, I liked and felt with most of the characters - some very likable and some were more complex, like Isonda.


The pace was good and the world-building was done with some creativity, though it reminded me a bit of Star Wars (Episodes I to III) with the old-fashioned traditions and customs combined with fantastical high-tech.


I deducted a point for the bit lackluster romance part. I didn't feel the love. The feelings between Corinth, her little brother, and the protag was much much more visceral. That was an intense relationship.


I am looking forward to the next installment!
