Goddess in the Machine

When Andra wakes up she's drowningNot only that but she's in a hot dirty cave it's the year 3102 and everyone keeps calling her Goddess When Andra went into a cryonic sleep for a trip across the galaxy she expected to wake up in a hundred years not a thousand Worst of all the rest of the colonists including her family and friends are dead They died centuries ago and for some reason their descendants think Andra's a deity She knows she's nothing. after sorting through my feelings ive realised that while i liked this book its just because i was enjoying the sci fi aspects the story itself is interesting enough even though not a lot happens its mainly a girl trying to adapt to a new world with some twist and turns along the way i still enjoyed reading about the technology and how an entire civilisation has adapted to what they think is magic but the way this is written is going to rub a lot of people the wrong way the authors attempt to world build via language is exhausting the made up lingo is not difficult to understand its basically english spelled in the most annoying way possible so it feels really gimmicky in my opinion it doesnt flow well with the rest of the narrative especially because zhades POV uses the slang terms not sure if i liked this enough to read the seuel when it comes out but i appreciate that this gave me a little sci fi adventure 35 stars

Realize she doesn't actually have the power to save their dying planet they'll kill herWith a vicious monarch on the throne and a city tearing apart at the seams Zhade and Andra might never be able to unlock the mystery of her fate let alone find a way to unseat the king especially since Zhade hasn't exactly been forthcoming with Andra And a thousand years from home is there any way of knowing that Earth is better than the planet she's woken to. What a disappointment I went into this a bit tentatively since I knew there was a chance it could suck but somehow still ended up feeling bummed outBasically it takes place in the future already Andra is put to sleep to be awoken with her family and other people from Earth on a new planet to make their home Instead Andra is woken up a thousand years in the future and is told that she s a goddess the third that has awoken She has to accept this role to survive but accepting it comes with danger If people think she s lying she can be executed and if people believe her then she might be chosen to be sacrificed The planet she s on is a wasteland and the dome that is used to protect the main city is fading and her duty as the goddess is to save everyone An exiled and illegitimate prince is the one who found her and also the one to help her navigate this new world while she secretly tries to find who the other goddesses are and make her way back to Earth This is an interesting concept and the bits and pieces of worldbuilding that we got intrigued me but this book was a mess I m not typically someone who looks specifically for plotholes but I didn t even have to look for these they became so apparent First everyone in the book speaks High Goddess aka English aka what the main character speaks but it s a jumbled up mess made even worse with the fact that that s what Zhade speaks and half of the book is in his perspective so we get full chapters of that It s not hard to figure out what people are saying for the most part but it is irritating and felt like a poor imitation of what the Belters achieved in the series The Expanse Mostly because no other language is ever mentioned minus one vague sentence by Zhade at the beginning of the book where he mentions that he speaks High Goddess than any of his other exiled companions Even when Andra isn t present and Zhade is speaking to other people they still speak that language so I m not sure what that purpose was Excerpts of this language include Neg certz not I m full brill don t you reck You can imagine how uickly this grew tiresome especially since the formation of this language on a linguistic level makes little sense and even less sense with a reveal near the end of the book Even the ruler speaks the same way even though they formed the language to speak with the other goddesses and so presumably the elite would have opportunity to learn to speak it fluently especially as children This doesn t feel like a fully blended language with a political backstory like The Expanse this feels like the author just jumbled together random words and decided to go with it much the vibe of when someone tries to imitate a dual language speaker when they don t speak one of the languages Or someone who s trying to imitate AAVE but doesn t understand it and thus is appropriating it The whole thing served to both make me uncomfortable and to annoy me deeply Secondly I just never felt connected to the characters I appreciate that Andra s loss of her family wasn t just brushed aside and was deeply a part of her motivations but I felt so distant from all of the characters the entire book There were a few twists with a blend of some that surprised me and some that seemed obvious by choppily placed clues Most of the plot seemed to be centered around the relationship between the two main characters but somehow this book managed to not only center it around them but still make them underdeveloped and have very little happen Normally with this kind of complaint it means that there s some instalove type relationship but nope The end did manage to be a bit interesting but nothing enough to redeem this book enough to give it a higher rating though it was enough to make me curious about the next book 88 Poems is there any way of knowing that Earth Relatos íntimos is better than the planet she's woken to.

Special but she'll play along if it means she can figure out why she was left in stasis and how to get back to EarthZhade the exiled bastard prince of Eerensed has other plans Four years ago the sleeping Goddess's glass coffin disappeared from the palace and Zhade devoted himself to finding it Now he's hoping the Goddess will be the key to taking his rightful place on the throne if he can get her to play her part that is Because if his people. This book is glorious And Lora Beth is a genius I don t say that lightly the language of this future world has been stunningly carefully painstakingly crafted and is a feast for pretty much anyone who s into words Which I m guessing is you since you re on Goodreads But there s so much than linguistics There s banter So much delicious banter And intrigue and dresses and knives and nanotech and a cocky prince who s most certainly up to no good There s cryotech and the heat of a rocky desert city and secrets and lies and action I love it It s brilliant And I hope you love it too

    after sorting through my feelings ive realised that while i liked this book its just because i was enjoying the sci fi aspects the story itself is interesting enough even though not a lot happens its mainly a girl trying to adapt to a new world with some twist and turns along the way i still enjoyed reading about the technology and how an entire civilisation has adapted to what they think is magic but the way

    Yes—it is time Chrissy for me to read your book Okay this isn’t actually a book about Chrissy Teigen; the girl on the cover just kind of looks like her I believe the main character is at least part Asian so that makes sense The actual writer is a debut author named Lora Beth Johnson and I have been SO exci
