Cute, funny little book. The mystery was a bit obvious (and the resolution bordering on heavy handed compared to the tone of the rest of the book) but I didn’t care because I dig all the cross-cultural interactions and explanations. Good world-building without having a big info dump. The relationship was cute but secondary for me to the cultural information. I will remember the alien culture more than the relationship. And the cat interactions, those were brief but wonderful.

I don’t think I could read too many books with this fun, bouncy POV but for how life is currently, it was a delightful little read. ( )

I wanted to like this book more. I was looking forward to reading it very much - I was expecting at least a 4 star read. It was sweet, insta-love, and fun, but nothing more.

It reminded me a lot of the Claimings series by Lyn Gala. It was too easy to draw parallels between the two books - both aliens were purple, they both made nests for their mates, they both had a thing about language, they both trilled when excited, and they both had natural lubrication ;) I loved the alien parts - the culture, the differences between them and humans, whole new concepts of being - but the connection between the MCs seemed trite and superficial at best. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with fluff, but it just isn't enough to make me really fall in love with the characters as I did in Claimings.

Maybe if there weren't so many similarities I wouldn't have been thinking about Ondry so much and I might have enjoyed it more. ( )

Going in, I wasn't sure what to expect. For the first few pages things seemed rather confusing as is often the case in a sci-fi story with aliens, spaceships, new worlds and in particular in a society where our gendernorms don't exist. However, once I was past that initial "what the what now" feeling, the story grabbed hold of me and didn't let go.

The author does a great job of handing out enough information to keep you informed without giving a huge info dump or leaving you floundering wondering wth is going on. As the story progresses you learn more and more until you realise you know everything you need to, even if she leaves you possibly wanting more, lol.

As always, the story has great characters. Characters that stand alone, ones I'd love to be able to go and visit, they are so multi-dimensional. The world building, a combination of familiar and utterly alien, is fantastic. I'd actually love to read more stories set in this universe. The mystery that needed solving was a great addition which added a lot of depth and created an understanding of this strange world that Tristol originated from, even if towards the end I suspected the outcome of it all.

I really can't recommend this enough. This is an author who knows how to play with her readers. Who knows which strings to pull to get (and keep) us hooked! Even if it's with slightly disturbing tenticle-like hair *grin*

*AUDIOBOOK*

As the servant of my own "wonderful feline creature, I absolutely loved the beginning of this book! And I fell in love with Tris right away... fluffy, living hair and bouncy exuberance and all!

A bit insta-lovey but that wasn't a deal-breaker for me. The only issue I had at the end of the book was that Mr. Montiguous seemed to have been forgotten! Poor little "wonderful feline creature"!

And once again, a smashing narrator elevated this book to top marks for me!

I really hope there will be more stories of the Galoi! ( )

This is not a Gail Carriger novel this is a G L Carriger novel so the romance is amped up in the story. This is a murder mystery story set on a space station with Tristol living in exile from his people on a space station filled with mostly humans and some aliens. Tristol is cat sitting for some human friends when a ship from his people hail the station. His race is very xenophobic and normally only contact other species through very few channels. Turns out there has been a murder and that is something that never happens on their planet and they don’t know how to proceed. They negotiate for the services of a detective to solve the murder and this puts Tristol and Detective Drey Hastion together and the sparks fly. Turns out each has been harboring a crush on the other and hadn’t acted on it. Lots of sex and some interesting alien culture insights in the book. It was a fun read and I’ll be interested to see more in this setting. ( )
