An excellent follow-up to [b:A Memory Called Empire|37794149|A Memory Called Empire (Teixcalaan #1)|Arkady Martine|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1526486698l/37794149._SY75_.jpg|59457173], carrying forward many of the previous characters and themes, and adding a number of new ones as well. I loved how the first-contact scenario played out, and I loved how the romance elements evolved as well. Beautiful and evocative writing, wonderful narration. This book leaves me hoping for more stories set in this universe! ( )

An amazing sequel in the Texicalaan series. The story has 4 POVS with Mahit Dzmare and Three Seagrass going out to war with the captain Nine Hibiscus. You also have future emperor Eight Antidote that plays politics back at the empire. The war is a first contact type war, where the POVs are mainly trying to find a way to properly communicate with the aliens. The 3 POVs at the war end are very interesting and exciting. Eight Antidotes storyline is more basic and a bit boring, but do help with more worldbuilding and interacting with the overall storyline as well. I very much enjoyed this book. ( )

An excellent continuation of the series, this book does a great job both expanding on the world-building from the first book, and adding some intriguing new elements. The aliens are compellingly alien. There's some added nuance about minority cultures within the empire. And my favorite protagonists are back, getting into exciting new kinds of trouble. ( )

Very interesting book, even not having read the 1st one (which I shall be going back and read.) I hope to see more in this universe. (Read for Hugo voting) ( )

I felt like it borrowed a lot from C.J. Cherryh's Foreigner and Cyteen series, but wasn't really as good. The young prince in waiting could just be a coincidence, but he really felt familiar. One thing I liked about C.J. Cherryh's series is that she didn't beat you over the head with the sex. This one, it's kind of overdone. How many times do you need to talk about finger f##king before the reader gets the point? It's the year 4618 or whatever, lesbianism is not shocking. At least in Foreigner, it's interspecies nookie. The first book in the series was better, maybe because the concepts were fresher. Don't get me wrong, I read through to the end, and it was mostly entertaining. If you liked this one and haven't encountered Cherryh yet, I envy you. ( )

First, reality was suspended. All breaches to Inca protocol occurred at once: the rues governing personal contact (visual, oral and corporal), drinking, and eating were broken. When Ciquinchara first met the conquerors he was allowed to do what no Indian could, and now the tables were turned. Since there was no signifying context to frame their interactions, the actors exposed themselves to limitless risk. Atahualpa could have bee slaughtered, or Soto and Hernando poisoned....

To ravage, to slaughter, to usurp under false titles--this they name empire; and where they make a desert they call it peace.

This book is for all the exiles:
the displaced, the refugee, the stateless;
the abandoned and the abadoner;
those made desolate and those cast free.

(And for Stanislav Petrov, who knew when to question orders.)
