This is some really moving writing on the passage of grief.

TW: Child death (incompatible with life).

Hm! This is a nice coda to Tor's earlier essay series on Lewis' works.

Essay, #notthetaggedbook

Mild pick. Held has a sciences background, and I liked how that perspective was built into the main character. It made the 'secret saboteur turned defender' much more grounded and nuanced.

I'll be curious if the other novellas in this series follow this character, or new ones.

Right, and now for something completely different. I've previously hugely enjoyed Held's fantasy works; this seems to be her first scifi work.

Pickpick

The way Sebastian grows this relationship gives me all the warm fuzzies. I've read so many books where the couple comes to an understanding in Book One, and Book Two opens with already a misunderstanding and separation -- a will-they-or-won't-they forced to drive reader engagement that I find vexing. But Leo and James are utterly different here.

esurient It's a romance in a mix of 'I don't deserve to be so lucky', 'and now what do I do', 'but wait, he wants... the same?' that I found utterly charming. 4mo
esurient And I found that I heartily enjoyed the mystery angle here, too. Every part, which almost never happens for me -- mysteries are not my preferred genre. 4mo
esurient All in, very solid cozy pick. I'm laying bets that Book Three (more) involves a spying angle. 4mo

shanaqui Ahhhh I want it. XD 4mo
esurient @shanaqui Soon! It will wait for you! 4mo
shanaqui @esurient I'm more enthusiastic than ever now that you've said it doesn't end up with a forced will-they-or-won't-they. :D That does drive me mad sometimes in series like this. 4mo

shanaqui I'm so irritated I'm on a month of no non-essential purchases, because I waaaant. Maybe I'll reread the first book... 4mo
esurient @shanaqui Hey, January is more than half over. You're almost there! 4mo

This is ADORABLE. Yes, that is Jason Todd tackling Damian Wayne for the last remaining part of Alfred's baking.
