Sharply characterized and beautifully written, Tarished Are the Stars was a look at a too close for comfort earth like planet and the way the best of intentions in trying to create a better future can go awry I loved the complexity of the interactions, motivations, and the machinations nothing was black or white The characters were my favorite part of all, and they especially shined in the form of Anna, Nathaniel, and Eliza and their entanglements with each other I love how they came up agai Sharply characterized and beautifully written, Tarished Are the Stars was a look at a too close for comfort earth like planet and the way the best of intentions in trying to create a better future can go awry I loved the complexity of the interactions, motivations, and the machinations nothing was black or white The characters were my favorite part of all, and they especially shined in the form of Anna, Nathaniel, and Eliza and their entanglements with each other I love how they came up against incredibly difficult choices and made mistakes with weighty consequences Rosiee Thor did not go easy on them And yet they were entirely sympathetic, and all so distinct in the way they handled their respective journeys So much character growth As a cherry on top, the f f romance was incredibly swoon worthy, and yet the ace friendships carried just as much emotional weight as those with sexual tension Highly recommended for fans of the Lunar Chronicles, morally complex YA, and anyone needingqueerness in their SFF A strong debut So excellent on so many levels.
