I discovered the Raksura series after reading the Murderbot series by Wells. While it is very different, high fantasy epic rather than futuristic techno-thriller, her excellent world-building, character creating, plot plotting make this just as fabulous, in its own way, as the Murderbot series. I look forward to further installments.

While the Raksura aren't my favorite of her creations, this is a most enjoyable novel.

'Harbors of the Sun' weaves together many different plot threads into a very enjoyable conclusion to the Raksura series. I want to point out one particular scene that I think helps illustrated why I've enjoyed these books so much -- while half the characters are chasing after a dangerous stolen artifact, the others are preparing to fight against an invasion of their homelands, and the viewpoint we get for their council of war is through the eyes of a very young girl who just wants to be included in grown-up talks. And in the middle of this very dire situation, the other queens let her sit in, not because she has anything useful to contribute (she finds most of the negotiations boring and almost falls asleep) but because they know she will be an adult one day and she might as well start participating and learning now. It's this sense of connectedness that I enjoy, that there is a practical daily life beyond the particular adventures, and that raising children and making a home are as important as anything else. Similarly, what might seem like the major plotlines (stolen artifacts and invasions) are both resolved by the three-quarters mark, giving room not only for a proper extended conclusion to this story, but also for the ongoing growth of the relationship between Moon and Jade that has occupied all the books so far. Both of them have had time to confront what their differences and expectations mean for each other, and here we get their ongoing challenge of maintaining that communication between each other. There's also a number of other relationships that get a bit more of a chance to grow; besides Moon's other lovers, there's a cross-species romance that I didn't see coming, but was adorable once it happened. In general, this is a very positive book; even the spots of prejudice and disdain only serve to highlight how ridiculous such judgement is, and I left this book with a smile on my face.
