Daughters of Forgotten Light

We rated this book:


Floating space prison, Oubliette, is home to Earth’s unwanted people, forgotten but not dead. Out of the population, there are three gangs fighting for survival on Oubliette, their fragile truce is shaken when a shipment from Earth, carrying a fresh batch of prisoners and limited supplies for the gangs to squabble over. This delivery contains two surprises: a drone and a baby.

One of the things that I noticed when reading Daughters of Forgotten Light was the diversity of the characters. Each character is diverse in one way or another, from ethnicity, disability, gender identity/sexuality (and so much more). Personally, I felt as though several representations were shallow, as some characters whole existence revolved around how diverse they were, but there were characters that weren’t just what made them unique, and actually learned how to overcome their struggles, in turn becoming a more diverse cast of characters. The women in Daughters of Forgotten Light were strong and remarkable, especially when put into the position of fighting for survival.
