Well, I have a lot of feelings about this book. I was fascinated by the world building, but felt it got in the way of the story, which didn't really start until page 200, and got dark and weird pretty quickly. I appreciate that this was written by a history professor, but overall, this book got bogged down in histories and philosophies and I cannot even give it stars because It does not fit into a simple 5 star category.

Affektion er kodeordet her. Although the ideas seem interesting, I have a really hard time with the contrived narrative choices. It reminds me a bit of Babel by R F Kuang in that I find the artificial framing very off-putting.

The first book in this series was quite good, but they went slowly downhill, until this unreadable one

Not a complete book, but part 1 of 2.
