    The book blurb calls this a fantasy, but I d have to disagree You know that book blurbs are nothingthan a sales pitch, right Someone, somewhere decided that Lotus and Thorn would sell better as a fantasy novel Only it really isn t Space shuttles, test tube experiments and animals fused with machine put it solidly in the science fiction camp, in my opinion.Don t let that turn you off, though It really does read like fantasy Fast paced fantasy with a strong, smart heroine, a love trian The book blurb calls this a fantasy, but I d...

    Lotus and Thorn is a book I picked up because I was intrigued about the scifi elements of it Scifi can be hit or miss for me, but it tends to have some of the most jaw dropping surprises And this book, WOW, it really had some good shockers The book is fairly long but it s worth it and it needed that length to tell this story right It s done right, with layers There are parts which kind of signify the change, but it s pretty obvious as you read We also get a variety of settings so we get t Lotus and Thorn is a book I picked up because I was intrigued about the scifi elements of it Scifi can be hit or miss for me, but it tends to have some of the most jaw dropping surprises And this book, WOW, it really had some good shockers The book is fairly long but it s worth it and it needed that length to tell this story right It s done right, with layers There are parts which kind of signify the change, but it s pretty obvious as you read We also get a variety of settings so we get to see this worldclearly, from the different angles and different sides Leica is the main character through the entire book, we don t switch characters, so I was really impressed how the author was able to make it so we did see so much of the world.Leica is a strong character that was easy to relate to I liked that she was suspicious and didn t trust immediately but at the same time was trusting, as she knew she needed allie...

    2.5 starsThe book copy describes Lotus and Thorn as a richly imagined fantasy in the vein of Tamora Pierce I want you to pull that bit away and set it on fire, since it s laughably inaccurate Lotus and Thorn is NOT a fantasy it is science fiction And it s like Tamora Pierce in that there are women who fight It s not like Sarah J Maas either Lies, lies, lies There s some cool stuff about Lotus and Thorn, but this book suffers from its sheer length.Despite the fact that Lotus and Thorn r 2.5 starsThe book copy describes Lotus and Thorn as a richly imagined fantasy in the vein of Tamora Pierce I want you to pull that bit away and set it on fire, since it s laughably inaccurate Lotus and Thorn is NOT a fantasy it is science fiction And it s like Tamora Pierce in that there are women who fight It s not like Sarah J Maas either Lies, lies, lies There s some cool stuff about Lotus and Thorn, but this book suffers from its sheer length.Despite the fact that Lotus and Thorn runs 429 pages and you feel every one , there s a shocking lack of world building What little there is comes at the very end of the book, and it doesn t manage to explain much of anything Honestly the biggest strength and weakness for this sci fi are one and the same the...
