I'm not sure how to describe the story, suffice it to say I enjoyed it enough to read more set in this story universe.

As if all this isn't fascinating enough, there are mind ships, which can feel emotions and be part of a family. The deep recesses of space can make a human lose his/her mind. Your ancestors reside in your mind and are constantly giving one instructions. A person can cast his/her illusions around a room in order to make it serene, have objects in it, and change the colors and/or murals on the walls. Further this novella is based on parent/child(ren) bonds, a royal court, and politics.
A really interesting and beautifully written work which will suck you in and not let go.
A wonderful follow up to Red Station Drifting. Set some years later, and in a different stelar neighborhood. But, once again, the characters are flawlessly drawn. And driven. And in this book we get a better idea about being a ShipMind as well. I really like that the author doesn't feel compelled to connect each and every dot, which draws in the reader even more.
Her characters varies interactions, and relationships, serve the plot well, and there are many twists and turns. Another wonderful read!
Much of this particular story is about the Empress' eldest daughter Bright Princess Ngoc Minh who rebelled against her mother. She gets banished but then invaders are on the way and her mother needs the Bright Princess' terrible weapons to save the Empire. Oops!
People are sent to find the lost Princess and her weapons but is it already too late?
