Primary Inversion is a a difficult book to categorize. It definitely has romance, but it's not a typical "romance" novel. There is a "happy for now" with the hope of a "happy ever after," which is important to me as a reader, but there is so much more to this book. I think the main appeal of this book to the romance reader would be the intensely character-driven story. The sci-fi details are intricate and amazing, but the character development trumps even that. Sauscony is an amazing heroine. Her personal journey through this book is heart-rending and satisfying.
This is one of many books set in the Skolian Empire, and I plan on returning there to "visit" in the not-too-distant future.
I listened to the audiobook from audible.com narrated by the always excellent Anna Fields.
