Mokoya and Akeha, the twin children of the Protector, were sold to the Grand Monastery as children. While Mokoya developed her strange prophetic gift, Akeha was always the one who could see the strings that moved adults to action. While his sister received visions of what would be, Akeha realized what could be. What's more, he saw the sickness at the heart of his mother's Protectorate.

A rebellion is growing. The Machinists discover new levers to move the world every day, while the Tensors fight to put them down and preserve the power of the state. Unwilling to continue to play a pawn in his mother's twisted schemes, Akeha leaves the Tensorate behind and falls in with the rebels. But every step Akeha takes towards the Machinists is a step away from his sister Mokoya. Can Akeha find peace without shattering the bond he shares with his twin sister?

2.5 I could easily rate this higher if it had been my thing

3.5 Review: The Black Tides of Heaven
I'm very interested in the setting and worldbuilding, but not super invested in the protagonist. There's just a certain lack of intensity? Something? But there are also raptors and magic. I may still pick up the sequel.

5.0 The Black Tides of Heaven
Man, I'm pissed. Couple of years ago, I also envisioned a book where children are essentially genderless until they chose at a certain age, and I was like "that'd be cool! So cool! I'm a genius." I'm not super pissed particularly because I feel robbed (well.) but because it was done super well in th...

3.5 The Tensorate novellas - JY Yang

I've liked this writer's short fiction so I was interested to see what a slightly longer format would provide and wasn't disappointed, though I li...
