"Apparently you have been wanting to write an SF trilogy with queer people savingthe world and romance present but as a secondary storyline (I'mparaphrasing, but I believe I got the gist of it correctly). And I said to myself - sign me up - because this sounded like just my cup oftea..." - A Dear Author Recommended Read and starred review.
"Beecroft has penned an adventure-filled utopian science fictionromance, anopposites-attract love story that also interrogates issuesof gender andbodies, all with intelligence and a healthy dollop ofhumor. WhileLioness of Cygnus Five will never be mistaken for hard SF,it does giftits readers with an engaging balance of extrapolativethought-experimentand unexpected romance." - Romance Novels for Feminists

The main characters are great: I am completely in love with Captain Campos, she is spectacular. The other main character, Bryant, is a surgeon and bioengineer who is really likable as well. All the side characters are super fun as well, and I'm looking forward to seeing them in the sequels. I honestly can't wait to see what happens next.
The writing is good, very few word processing mistakes, and a few non sci fi terms I had to look up. One glaring 1.5 page copy and paste duplication, that was annoying.
That was my initial response, but rereading in a few years later, I'm much more taken with it. I love the idea of these two people from very different world views, coming to see each other clearly. And I liked the nano bots, so sophisticated they could be magic, and Aurora, our lioness, no sleeping beauty but a dazzling fighter and a woman struggling with her beliefs. Happy to recommend. Off to buy book 2
I could write more, but others have done sat. Only, when you read the book, the words spring out to you and you are thre with her.
Great writing, great concept.

I thought her two main characters were really good. Complex, believable and - each in their own way - mildly terrifying. I certainly wouldn't want to be locked on a ship with either of them, let alone both, if they were angry with me! I particularly liked how Bryant and Aurora reversed the usual male and female roles, without being made inferior as a man or a woman by the text. Aurora's experience in the middle of the book, and her violent revulsion to it, only reinforced her femininity.
The title to my review isn't a joke, BTW. It's not often I read a book and think "this needs to be a film", but I did this repeatedly while reading this book.
