    One thought on “Look to the Sun”

    1. Though a "Look to the Sun" is not really fantasy in the usual sense it reads as a modern day fairy-tale. As with every fairy-tale this story has a dark undertone with real warnings and a heavy moral. The author gives us a made up location in a made up time where technology is limited. But, it echoes of our recent past and, in many areas of the world, including the United States, of our present. Basically the feel of the book is a picture of what it looks like when a sinister and fascist regime s [...]

    2. Advance note: I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, and I am also friends with Emmie on Twitter and FB. Review: This book was written during the tumult of 2016, with the frightening cultural spectres of Brexit and the Trump candidacy as a backdrop. No one reading this book with that knowledge would not see the stories of Rose and Beo as anything but a cry against the fascism, bigotry, homophobia, and transphobia which oozes into every corner of our world. And seen as [...]

    3. Oddly prescient, I started reading this in the aftermath of the US election and had to stop and read something that was less terrifying. As a bookworm (my stats this year don't include all the unpublished manuscripts I've read, they easily double my count), I adored the idea of the book within the book being the key. I rather wished that came into the ending a bit more than it did. I also loved the queer representation here. It's awesome to imagine a world where poly, queer families can be a nor [...]

    4. This book is beautiful. It took me quite a bit longer to read than I expected. I even received an advanced readers copy, yet it took me nearly a month to finish. There are at least two reasons. Both deal with the turmoil of this month in the current political sphere. This book is a frightening possible future as it deals with the rise of fascism. That made it a hard subject to want to delve into. The general overthinking about the world caused me to not do much of anything I usually do, reading [...]

    6. Wonderful characters with heart wrenching decisions to make. A love story for today's political climate. If you read this I hope you read it with an eye for love and an open heart. What will you do when the revolution comes?
