Becky Chambers: A Prayer for the Crown-Shy (2022, Independently Published) 4 stars

Review of 'A Prayer for the Crown-Shy' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

E-galley received from NetGalley in return for an honest review.

A Prayer for the Crown-Shy follows Sibling Dex and Mosscap the Robot as they travel the human portion of their moon to ask what it is, exactly, that humans need.

A Prayer for the Crown-Shy is a balm and a joy. This book confronts a particular kind of despair for the future that is so easy to fall into in our world. The friendship between Dex and Mosscap offers hope and belief that isn't simple or strained, but nuanced and complicated.

This series is a love song to platonic, life-altering relationships and to the real possibility of a better future after apocalyptic selfishness.

I want to thank Becky Chambers for these books because they heal something in me.
