    1. The Course of Honour is original m m sci fi romance posted on Archive of Our Own Warning one of the main characters was in an abusive relationship prior to the beginning of the book mostly emotionally abusive, but a little physical The Course of Honour stars Prince Kiem of the planet Iskat and Count Jainan of the planet Thea Five years ago, the Theans sent Jainan to marry Iskat s Prince Taam in order to secure an alliance A month before the start of the book, Taam was killed in a flybug personal [...]

    2. 2.5It does end good, but I found the first 50 60% difficult to like I think the plot is a bit thin, and I didn t like one of the MC We don t have a background to let us understand him, a hint of past abuse isn t enough, sorry And much is the character himself I fear.But the book comes with a very high recommendation from a fantasy author, plus it s free You can risk it

    3. If you loved Lois McMaster Bujold s Vorkosigan saga or Katherine Addison s Goblin Emperor or PG Wodehouse, you really, REALLY have to read this book It is the most utterly delightful space opera courtly intrigue, with a strong and ADORABLE romantic plotline based around an arranged political marriage between space princes It is so charming and funny and the banter is SO great and the world is so immersive It s a comfort read even on first read, and even if you aren t generally a romance reader, [...]

    4. This one made me think of the second book in the ancillary justice series not in terms of the plot, but in terms of the tone and the kind of general sense of the world it does create in your head And it does a few very clever things about traits behaviors experiences that are usually associated with women Oh yes, it s still a cheesy romance, with a few plotholes, the obligatory being stuck in the snow together also fighting a bear , etc But hey, it never pretends to be something else and is amaz [...]

    5. When I want romance, this kind of thing is exactly what I crave Slow burn is great, arranged marriages are a guilty pleasure trope that I really enjoy, and I fell in love with these characters really fast When a character has me laughing out loud within a few pages of the start of the book, it s pretty much guaranteed that I m going to love them, and Kiem definitely did that Reading this story is basically all I did yesterday, to be honest, and I can t say I was even tempted to abandon it for an [...]

    6. I ll just start reading this, I said to myself, and several hours later I appear to have finished the book What a fun read space princes, arranged marriage, super competent ladiesis book hit a lot of my sweet spots I also love a book where characters don t understand each other and come to understanding over the course of the story, and the romance here was heavy on that This was a lovely book, and exactly what I was in the mood to read warm, and sweet, and funny Also, I would 100% read a book a [...]

    7. A very cool space opera origific If you like the arranged marriage trope mixed with court intrigue this one is for you Especially recommended for K S arranged marriage AU fans, the mood reminded me of some of the best fics we had in the fandom.

    8. One of my first reads from Archive Of Our Own Lovely mm space opera recommended by Snowspelled author Stephanie Burgis on Twitter Slow burn, no graphic sex, little bit of angst, danger, and intrigue.

    9. It did hold my interest till the end, but I don t have very strong feelings about it The main characters just aren t interesting or complex enough for my taste and the villains were caricatures.

    10. Sci fi, political intrigue, m m arranged marriage This story swept me up and kept me invested in both main characters and the intrigue that winds throughout their political marriage I would love a sequel potentially focusing on Bel and allowing us to revisit Kiem and Jainan at the same time.Themes of domestic abuse emotional so than physical are covered in a characters backstory with sensitivity and empathy Avoliot does an excellent job of letting the readers imagination fill in the potential tr [...]

    11. My gosh, can I just gush about this for a million years I don t normally put things from AO3 on but with this being original and a full novel I thought I d get away with it I love this book It s an arranged marriage in space I won t go into too much plot detail becasue you should go read it yourself but it s awesome The plot is convincing It uses a lot of fandom tropes that I love The characters are awesome The best thing is the writing Avoliot is a good writer and knows their craft They ve craf [...]

    12. I ve been looking at the original works on archive of our own after finding a fantastic novel that unfortunately isn t on on there and thought I d give this one a try too The plot s rather thin and hits all the expected beats but the first half or so made for an entertaining read, perfect for a cold weekend when all you want to do is curl up in bed with a book and, like me, can t resist a queer space romance The rest, once the plot really kicks in, lost my interest and I ended up skipping quite [...]

    13. The people from Earth who settled this planet figured the reason everything had gone wrong on Earth could be blamed in technology so it s banned This world froze technology around the time of our Renaissance and that is one of the themes.The other is all the political intrigue around court life and the religion that the founders of this world had created to keep people from developing any technology.Really enjoyed it.

    14. This came well recommended The actual writing was fine, and the protagonists well drawn But most everyone else was 2 dimensional, and the plot wrapped up very conveniently It sort of felt like an AU of A Civil Campaign with the serial numbers filed off.

    15. Very good writing and the plot kept me invested the whole time The relationship develops nicely and I loved the two main characters as well as the minor ones Overall a great read and it s on AO3 so go read it tw for past abuse

    16. Well this was an absolute delight of trope tastic proportions I particularly enjoyed the unexpected detour into plot devices we loved in Inception fandom circa 2011 toward the end It s also very skillful writing, esp in terms of examining without over explaining one character s experience of relationship abuse And it doesn t fall into lazy racist tropes, either In this it leaves Captive Prince dead in the water.

    17. Love the worldbuilding and the characters are squee worthy sweethearts Would totally buy an ebook version if the author decides to put it up on or whatever.
