About this deal

They talk back and form for a bit and then end the meeting quickly which surprises Ashby who expresses his disappointment with the GC’s promised protection.

They have kept this secret, fearing backlash from Aeluon society which has a strong taboo against inter-species relationships. I advise checking this out even if you are not a massive fan of science fiction, the characters and creating design make the story a needs to check out. r/Fantasy doesn’t really seem to have a lot of teenagers, openly at least, talking about books and what they think them, and I’ve seen a few threads from other teenagers trying to get engaged more with others their age who read Fantasy (because god knows they’re few and far between), so I thought why not start doing a review series from the perspective of a teenager.

if they survive the long trip through war-torn interstellar space without endangering any of the fragile alliances that keep the galaxy peaceful. The story was greatly focused on the characters and also their relationships, which interested see in a science-fiction book. Chef was a doctor during the war and saw his daughters die in it, and the war later eventually ended. It promises to be a fun filled, scifi romp through the cosmos aboard the Wayfarer, out titular ship who’s adventures we will be following in this book. Rosemary is introduced to The Fishbowl: a large domed room showing space outside and filled with planters with various vegetables labeled around the room.

At the end, the ship is damaged by hostile aliens, precipitating changes in the relationships between the characters, setting them on new paths. Chef believes none of the crew would have an issue with who Rosemary’s father is, just that she lied.

Later, after a conversation with Ashby, Rosemary discovers that Sissix regards the crew of The Wayfarer as her feather family. Bonus points if they're a crew on a ship and there's romance involved, especially romance between a human and alien.

Well, if this band hates the establishment that much, then I doubt they’ll care about me making up my own words. After years of seeing her sisters suffer at the hands of an abusive prince, Marra—the shy, convent-raised, third-born daughter—has finally realized that no one is coming to their rescue. He also reveals that he’s regularly mixed in a potent anti-odour powder into the soap dispensers and soap bars to combat the human smell for the more sensitive species onboard The Wayfarer. Welcome, intrepid spacers, to the Marginalia for The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers, Book 1 in the Wayfarers serieis.I think the closest comparison I can make to this feeling (and this book as a whole) would be the Mass Effect games, which I had to strongly resist booting up while reading The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet. Harrow the Ninth, the sequel to Gideon the Ninth, turns a galaxy inside out as one necromancer struggles to survive the wreckage of herself aboard the Emperor's haunted space station. Ashby bought the Wayfarer second-hand and refitted it as a tunnelling ship, acting as captain and personally hiring his own crew. In fact I put it off for ages - cosy slice of life didn't appeal to me, even if it is sci-fi - but I eventually bought and read it a) because the amount of glowing recommendations really piled up over time, b) because I was just coming off the grimdark military sci-fi of Gaunt's Ghosts and wanted something more chill and optimistic as a palate cleanser, and c) because I wanted a space opera that might remind me of the downtime in Mass Effect games. If you read the book, by all means, read the spoilers - I am interested in what you all think about the book.
