This was so thought-provoking. The story takes place far in the future after humans had our chance at taking care of our planet and, unfortunately, (but not surprisingly) failed. Alloys are the main population now in different worlds, and it was them that basically rebuilt and recreated safe planets.
The main character this story revolves around, however, is human. I loved following her story because she’s incredibly kind and also a genius, so I loved learning all the small details of this scifi world through her.
This really made me think, and in good ways. After reading this, I really sat and just pictured where earth really will be in 10 years, 20 years… much farther out, as well. And, I think that’s a sign of a great book. A book that has a lasting impact. And, Meru certainly does.
