The RemnantS itself and Tebrey must fight against a seemingly unstoppable enemy to save not just himself the expedition and the woman he loves but his very soul Some things are worth dying for but it’s the things worth living for that matt Could have been 4 star but character motivations and plot threads were annoyingly all over the placeReminded me of playing tabletop rpgs where things happened due to player actions and whims and these had to be bent into the plot and story after the fact The opening scenes are great but do lead you to think you are reading a certain kind of story only for the rest of the book to take you on a completely different pathA lot of the action seems to take place 'offscreen' and in recap infodumpsNevertheless I liked the plot and setting and have hopes for the rest of the seriesview spoiler May cause flashbacks for He ManBattlecat fans hide spoiler
