    Check out reviews Perspective of a WriterYumi is a disgraced journalist trying to clear her name Her job is to document the mission to the Hikoboshi system and she’s determined to get it right despite all the trouble she causes But when unknown vessels fire on their ship and her life pod crash lands on a dying moon her mission falls to pieces Now she must navigate the unfamiliar and deadly terrain deal with a society she doesn’t understand and try to stay alive until rescue comes if it ever doesThe short reviewI enjoyed this book from page one The first 25% was a little awkward as we are thrown into getting to know Yumi while also trying to understand where she came from where she was now and where her ship was headed When we hit Kurai the story really gets going And I didn't look back for a moment I was totally on board with Yumi and her overboard journalist ways as well as her loving relationship with her mentor Kazuo Once we meet the inhabitants of the moon we understand that this is a tech rich world Yumi's been dropped into even advanced that her own which has space travel Like Yumi we explore the world with her as she searches for her family It's not an easy world and up until now Yumi has lead a rather headstrong life where she could be and do whatever she wants It's a fascinating way to naturally give an empowered woman restrictions that enrich the plot I'm so looking forward to when Yumi hits the main planet HikariCover Title grade AThis cover totally drew me in When the book was suggested to me in comments I went right to Goodreads to check out about it And that cover convinced me The graphic does a lot to give you a sense of the sci fi nature of the book the Japanese cultural flavor as well as hint at our badass female protagonist without giving us the stereotypical girl posing on the cover I give major kudos for that The font is readable but still stylistic and the title does its job well I wouldn't change anything pretty rare for meWhy should you read this intriguingly unique start to a new series? A Woman Made to Get into TroubleYumi's home planet is also based on Japanese culture but is free toward people so she is an empowered woman I quite liked that she grew up in an environment like that of us the reader She is a go getter who will do whatever she has to in order to succeed in her goals Being a people person who can read others and react well in the situation comes in handy Yumi isn't made for such a society as she finds herself and so we can TOTALLY relate to her reactions and having to think of self preservation in an alien world Malfunctioning Androids in a Broken Society“To the new ship that’s entered our system please come get us We’ve been exiled on Kurai for twenty years We need food and protection but we can provide technology in return Please We cannot stay here any longer”Yumi is quite blessed to meet someone willing to give her a chance and I quite loved this person Because this is one messed up society We get the lay of the land quickly and compactly as Yumi struggles against the Japanese corporate honor and money driven way of life She wakes up already in debt to strangers just for her life Pile on top of that androids that can kill in a heartbeat and she is ready to high tail it off this moon Battles Hardship and DeathThe battles with androids and other humans were often and quite well described and action packed I found them super fun and the stakes were high But there wasn't just physical tribulations there was also some mental and emotional hardships that kept me rooting for Yumi and feeling for her situation as if it were my own When death unexpectedly enters the story you are left shocked and reelingAs a WriterWhen the perfect character is developed for a world it makes me quite excited as a reader And quite happy as a writer because it means that conflict should arise naturally World building can be great but if the character isn't oriented within that world in a way that gives the reader something to worry about then the book will be quite dry and hard to readYou will fly through this book Not only was the character related to the world building is a great way the world building itself is quite fascinating A corporateocracy is something that I already have been exploring myself so to read another author's POV was super excitingThis is a wonderful cross between an urban fantasy and a science fiction story based on unexpected Japanese culture The political society and technological advances will entrance you are Yumi struggles to make sense of her role in such a world Crash Land on Kurai is a great start to a new series I highly suggest reading it⋆ ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Authenticity⋆ ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Writing Style⋆ ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Plot Pacing⋆ ⭐⭐⭐⭐ World BuildingBOTTOM LINE Malfunctioning Androids Japanese Corporation Culture Mixed with a Journalist Prone to Trouble Start to a Fun Sci Fi Series Thanks to the author for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review It has not influenced my opinion and no other compensation was givenYou can find this review and many others on my book blog Perspective of a Writer See my special perspective at the bottom of my reviews under the typewriter
