See, she reviewed Heart Fire here, and then I reviewed Heart Search here, and there was reminiscing in the comments to that review, and of course I had to come back and re-read Heart Change and Heart Fate. What’s a reader to do, after all?

This is the eight novel in the series, and I definitely do no recommend that anyone start here. The world building is complex on several levels–socially, religiously, technologically–so a new reader would be understandable lost.
