I picked up this book because (1) it was included in my Kobo subscription, so low risk and (2) it bore the names of Sarah Monette, whose work I love, and Elizabeth Bear, about whose work I'm trying to decide whether I like it or not. I didn't expect to like it this much.

The concept of this series is "a television show disguised as a series of short stories: TV that you read", according to the introduction. And it does work that way. It's about a special FBI team dedicated to stopping serial killers with paranormal powers. The format of each book (well, this one at least) is 4 novellas, interspersed with very short stories that are sort of snapshots into the life of the team or its members.

In the first novella, the pilot I suppose, we get to know the team through the eyes of its newest member. Of course they all have dark secrets that will be revealed as the series progresses (I'm assuming). The second one was a bit harder to follow for me, because by then we're supposed to know who's who, which... is not my strong point. But I still enjoyed the whole book very much, and I will probably get to the next one very soon.

Maia is infinitely lovable. This book has plenty of pitfalls but all of them are forgivable in light of that fact.

It's about a gentle, mixed-race prince who is rather far from the throne in the succession line but because of unexpected circumstances is made emperor. I found it a nice change of pace from "grimdark" fantasy, although it's maybe a bit bland.

I enjoyed how it emphasized building things rather than wars (not that I have anything against wars, as long as they are fictional, but as I say I liked the change of pace), but I felt that perhaps things always came too easy for Maia. He doesn't know much about governing but it doesn't matter, because with his gentle, calm style he always makes the right decision. He doesn't know much about political intrigues but it doesn't matter because his enemies are incompetent... It's just a bit bland.… (més)

This book is a soft DNF. On a day when I couldn’t find an audiobook that fit this one did. This is an extremely long audiobook over 20 hours, and I did listen to approximately three. This story is about the offspring of a king, who has no chance of ever sitting on the throne and has been in isolation on the outskirts of the kingdom. They receive news that their father and all the older brothers have died which means they are now the monarch. All of that was very interesting and kept my attention. However, in listening to this audiobook the number of times they repeat the word “serenity” is annoying. I gather that this is a greeting both in welcoming and in leaving kind of like aloha, but it’s just odd. I can’t tell if this is a mistake, or purposeful. It is done so often it could almost become a drinking game. I was at the stage of the story when the main character is told they must take a wife to keep their nephews and younger siblings from killing them to take over the throne, that I stopped the audiobook and never went back. I was thoroughly enjoying this book, that I will probably read it in print because the story was good, but the narration was annoying.… (més)
