The National People's Voice speaks for Sanmarian and all of Kael For fifteen years they have ruled Kael in relative peace For fifteen years they have uietly snuffed out dissent wherever they found it Rose Abernethy and Beo Mataya are two strangers drawn. Advance note I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review and I am also friends with Emmie on Twitter and FB Review This book was written during the tumult of 2016 with the frightening cultural spectres of Brexit and the Trump candidacy as a backdrop No one reading this book with that knowledge would not see the stories of Rose and Beo as anything but a cry against the fascism bigotry homophobia and transphobia which oozes into every corner of our world And seen as such it is a remarkable tale one of depth and beauty with tight imagery throughout painting a picture of Sanmarian the city in which the story takes place which draws the reader in like a good fantasy novel You want to go there to visit this world that is a blend of the 1930s and modern day and any story which has taken you to a distant shore You want to meet these people Rose and Beo especially and see Beo's photographs and Rose's father's watch and Red Sunrise the book within a book You want to fight with them against the NPV National People's Voice and the hatred of anyone who is seen to be differentBut what Emmie does with this story elevates this above a generic story of the fight against evil Reminiscent of The Man in the High Castle Emmie paints a world like ours and yet unlike interwoven with social commentary and insight Like The Man in the High Castle and other speculative fiction books of the 1960's Look to the Sun plays with gender and relationships and freedom in a way designed to open the reader's mind Had I picked it up on a shelf of classic sci fi from that era I would not have known it did not belong with the rest maybe they'll call Emmie if they ever get around to the next Dangerous Visions anthology It is a deeply feminist and ueer novel though those words are never used but most importantly it is a good story filled with characters worth knowing imagery which fires up the mind and a beautiful tale to tellIf I had one criticism it would be that the story's climax seemed a little rushed as if the author needed to get the book out where it could be read in that same way that many authors do that need of a story clawing at the inside of their eyes and I wanted to let it breathe and take timeThere will be much that is written and created in Donald Trump's America crying out for a better world Look to the Sun is a worthy first entrant into that world of art and one which should be long remembered by those who read it

Characters Look to the Sun

Look to the SunTogether by one thing alone Red Sunrise a book no one else seems to have read A book only two types of people ever ask about collectorsand the NPV A book both Rose and Beo feel was written just for them As winter falls in Sanmarian's cobbled streets and. This book is beautiful It took me uite a bit longer to read than I expected I even received an advanced readers copy yet it took me nearly a month to finish There are at least two reasons Both deal with the turmoil of this month in the current political sphere This book is a frightening possible future as it deals with the rise of fascism That made it a hard subject to want to delve into The general overthinking about the world caused me to not do much of anything I usually do reading included But it is beautiful Each of Emmie's books is perfect and wonderful unto itself but they do seem to successively get better Bolder DeeperThe characters have wounds psychological emotional and even physical they have depth It is refreshing even astounding to read about people like me ueer in than one way And to read about them in a way that is not directly about them or about their ueerness Because in this world it is normal; not dwelt upon I think I should very much like to live in this Sanmarian
