Well, this isn't a book for me. I'm glad you were able to enjoy it, but it sounds a little too slow moving and explicit for me. Thanks though!
And I really appreciate the work you did but there needs an improvement.

An intriguing tale but would be better if it moved at a faster pace.

I am wondering what will happen to the love of Tehi and Laerd Teger who fall in love with each other but they came from a different tribe. Their affairs are not good to both tribes. Thank you for this helpful review.

The character of Tehi in this story shows a good reflection of an ideal attitude or character who is a spoiled an naughty daughter to loving and humble one. Thank you for this great review.

It's got a great blend of tradition and technology that makes it good for a screenplay.

It's a bit too slow for me, but the premise is very interesting.

I didn't care for the caste system and the snobbery of the main character portrayed early in the book, but it sounds as though she really did a realistic transition to being a better person.

I agree, really good review. I definitely think the developmental of the characters is great and I would recommend to older readers.

I note that the development of the characters is mentioned as a strength; it seems there is some detailed world building too.

I did purchase the book based on reading the preview and your wonderful review. Roxanne Bland write a great storyline.
Her characters are easy to follow.

Reading this book makes me remind of the movie avatar.. Well this is a scifi novel while avatar is a scifi movie. By the way this book is good. Maybe next you have to be more sensitive about the plot of the story but over all it is good i will give this 3 out of 4. I will recommend this book to all the people who is interested.
