So I was initially a little put off paying $5.99 for a novella, but really this is the perfect length. At about 200 pages it's short enough to finish easily in a day (and still have a life), but all those pages are used well. There is the set-up of your typical sci-fi world with a bigger empire who is trying to control resources and individual societies/planets are trying to rebel, so they cover this but don't insult our intelligence by overly explaining too much, we get it. And the information is given within the context of the characters lives.
Although there are side characters that we meet and that the MC's interact with (Ranick, Pierce, Jarold), really most of the time is spent with interactions between Valero and Tristan which I think helped to develop such strong characters and character relationships in the shorter length. I loved the development of their relationship and thought Tristan reacted and progressed realistically given the situation. I loved the addition of Tristan's eyesight and his naughty little secret. And it was just good fun!
