The Stars. Gray mixes climate change related apocalypse and interplanetary adventure, with the existence of souls and the meaning of morality and humanity, in relation to both Abel the Mech and the human race. The romance is compelling, as is the complex relationship Abel and Noemi have as master and servant according to robotics law.
Also the ending… the ending!!! Get it here. I'm Hux, an autistic nonbinary person who loves books.

Is this well-written? She's published before, but I was a bit disappointed by the writing in Empress of a Thousand skies another sci-fi and hoping for something less middle-grade and strong and epic. Pamela Hill I'm a little confused by these comments. Claudia Gray did not write Empress of a Thousand Skies. Are you thinking of A Thousand Pieces of You? Will this be a duology? Lillian In this interview with the author, she stated there are two books planned but more could come from the world.

Abel, the abandoned mech, is ecstatic. Well, his programming directives forces him to listen to the highest commanding human in the area This is the last time Abel lets the humans make the plans. Along the way, Abel notices that he's changed. Perhaps it was the thirty years of isolation, but he's having thoughts and feelings? And they all center on that exasperating human Noemi, a citizen of Genesis, was raised to hate and fear mechs , almost as much as she hates Earth.
She's familiar with them - there are many models, some of them for combat, some for nannying. She's only ever seen the combat ones, but she has a grasp of what the others can do He's something else entirely.

Your soul is bigger than your programming. Will they be able to save the world s? Or die trying? Because of you, I've been truly alive. And now that I've lived, I can be ready to die for something I believe in and the person I love. I am as surprised as anyone to have enjoyed this one so thoroughly. Though, I did knock off a star purely because of Noemi. She is an average everyday YA heroine through and through. She begins the book as a soldier, in command of her vessel. She's whip-smart and a decorated veteran of the war.
She grasped the "basics" of interstellar flying and quantum physics, and is ready to die for the rebel army Or seventeen, don't really remember and don't care enough to look up. It's a bit frustrating that the authors are always trying to cram so much into their main characters. They always end up feeling like whiny Mary-Sues. Couldn't the author have just added 5 to 10 years to her age?
Because we want to hit that sweet YA demographic? So, you may be wondering, why such a high rating? It was Abel. The mech. He's won my heart. He was an absolutely awkwardly hilarious mech. The author nailed the personality of a robot who is becoming human so well that the moments from his perspective more than makes up for Noemi's.
I loved his his cold logic led to funny siutations. Like when Noemi needed money, and he immediately offered up a solution. The planets were fun and fascinating.
