Read full description of the books:
Confession: before this year, I never read much science fiction. Why? Well, the genre is very convoluted to me, a person who is much more fantasy-oriented than science fiction-oriented.
However, I have to say that, if more sci-fi writers wrote like Phoebe North, I would be much more inclined to pick up sci-fi novels. She brings to mind the lush writing of Ursula K. Le Guin, except with a much more accessible flair.
Vadix, the alien character in this short story, is a longing, wanting soul. He wants to be with his mate, Velsa, but his studies come first. In a world where mating is as much of a necessity as it is a "recreational activity," Vadix and Velsa, who put their academic goals first, are seen as strange by their siblings and peers -- but still they continue on their paths even as a strange star looming overhead threatens to change their futures entirely beyond what they could imagine. . .
I can't wait to read more about Vadix and his future. There is just so much potential for a great story to unfold.
So, yes, you should read it because it's free and awesome. My prediction? Phoebe North may just revolutionize science fiction for young adults.
