Usually I love Brandon Sanderson, but the plot of this novel is so forced and so artificial that I got nearly no enjoyment out of it. You could feel Brandon massage the details at every moment so that Spensa met exactly the right people at exactly the right time with exactly the right equipment so that exactly the right plot could occur.

Heavy handed. Would not recommend.

I think I am at 150 audiobooks completed on audible, and I can honestly say this has been the most though provoking and engrossing series I have listened to so far. Only Three Body Problem has given me as much to think about after finishing a series or a book.

This book drops you into a political scene centuries in the future, and the characters do not sit around explaining how the world works. Ada Palmer expects you to work as hard understanding this future world as a 16 century person might have to work in order to understand our political interconnections. While it might not be easy, the pay-off is truly the most rewarding of any series I have read.

It is not boring; its masterfully woven art. Give it a shot. If you feel like you're lost, then you're supposed to be lost. Ada Palmer will get you to where you need to go, I promise.
