go against everything she believes in to protect her family, or will she choose her heart and doom everyone she loves to death?
When I originally began reading this book, I was quite skeptical. The whole 'man-slave' thing made me slightly uncomfortable, to be honest. Slavery is a very touchy subject, so I think that Seven Steps is very brave for using it as the main theme of this book. I actually almost quit reading, I wanted to, but for some reason I just kept turning the page. I don't know what kind of voodoo magic is in the pages of this book, but it's the real deal. I didn't close the book until I had to sleep/charge my device. I snuck away during the day to read. That really says a lot about the quality of this book. (Why isn't snuck a word? What world do we live in?! I'm leaving it because that's how I talk...I will NOT say 'sneaked'.)
I feel like Empress Nadira's outlook really leveled out uncomfortableness of the idea of a slave planet. ('Uncomfortableness' isn't either, but I do not care. I even used it again below. Take that, English!"
Other than the minor uncomfortableness, this book was beautifully executed. It was very, very well written, and I honestly can't wait to see what happens. I really want to see where they go!
I can't say much, for fear of giving something away, but if you're as into sci-fi books as I am, pick up The Slave Planet. It was soooooooo good!
As always, you can see all the links below. If you have noticed, suddenly all the broken image graphics should be actual pictures now! If they're not, please let us know in the comments. You can find our post that explains what happened (titled "Something Almost Ruined CommonBookSense") *here*.
