I am for sure going to be reading Newman's Between Two Thorns. I am not sure about Firbank at this point.
I'm an avid science fiction and fantasy reader, and I've never heard of Emma Newman. Clearly I am going to have to check her out!
I finished Planetfall by Newman, in one day. I listened to the audiobook read by the author who did an amazing job. Most authors should not read their books. There was + and - in this one. It did remind me of The Sparrow which is a better book. I won't read more in the series. This was enough for me.
