From Stars They Fell
From Stars They Fell by H.R. Harrison

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Content warnings: betrayal, sex, death, attempted murder, drugging of a character in an attempt to kill them, neopronoun use, non heterosexual relationships.

I received an ARC via Netgalley in exchange for a fair an honest review.

I adored this. From the female dwarves with beards to the neopronouns for the alien.

There was some great world building in this novella that I’ve seen lacking in full novels. There’s also the bits where the alien doesn’t know the language and then goes to learn the language that’s really neat (and it’s not just one language that xie has to learn). It was all so cute.

I do remember it having a few issues here and there but for the most part the few issues are masked by the rest of the book. There is deaf representation in this book (that’s the other language the alien has to learn is sign language) but as I am hearing and don’t speak much sign language that’s not something I can speak a whole lot on and I would defer all my potential issues (I think I had one or two things that rubbed me weird with representation there) to the deaf community as they are more the experts in their community and what is good and bad representation.

Overall though, super cute novella that I’d definitely recommend.
