Book Review: The Stars Are Legion by Kameron Hurley

The Stars Are LegionThe Stars Are Legion by Kameron Hurley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is another entertaining entry in Kameron Hurley’s body of work.

She has pitched it as “Lesbians! In! Spaaaace!” and it is that, and it is also much more. With her trademark worldbuilding that often involves things that gross me out in their absolute effectiveness, this space opera has tight pacing and emotional heft. This features a whole cast of characters where no one is a reliable narrator, no one is to be trusted, but there is much truth in the telling of the tale, even if those telling it aren’t always honest.

Themes of perseverance, betrayal, and doing your best to move forward as supports are stripped away permeate this ticking clock of a space opera.
