Summary: Sometimes all the things you know can be challenged by the one thing you don’t. Sometimes love isn’t easy to explain – not when a universe of differences exist between you.
Recommendation: Okay, so this is probably not going to be for everyone but I have always been interested in pairings that explore a little past human standard. This is more than a little past with the Poleepkwa being hermaphroditic, but I find that the emotions are the same even while the mechanics are different. There’s caring and jealousy, hurt and understanding all with a plot involving intrigue and something of a tragic backstory for Wikus.
