Seven of Infinities: A Xuya Universe Novella

We rated this book:


Vân, a scholar, comes from a poor background, a secret that she tries to hide from everyone as she tutors a promising young woman. Sunless Woods is a mindship and a retired thief. When a woman comes to visit Vân’s student, only to die without telling her what she wants, Vân and Sunless Woods are pushed together to investigate. They follow a trail of greed to questionable teahouses and the wreck of a mindship, all the while attempting to keep their secrets from one another.

Having never read something set in the Xuya Universe before, some things didn’t make sense, or I was left wondering if I was supposed to know who a certain person is, but most things are explained and the story wasn’t so confusing that it wasn’t enjoyable. The characters aren’t all that deep, making them hard to like. However, the main two characters, Vân and Sunless Woods, are better developed than the rest.
