Elliot was the one who got away, the boy Leo's family deemed to be unsuitable for marriage. Now he's the biggest catch of the season and he seems determined to make Leo's life miserable.

In a group of spaceships where captains are royalty and various people are conducting politics like they were still on earth. Princess Leonie 'Leo' Kolburg is the heir to a family with very little money left and tonnes of pride. She has ideas but no-one takes her seriously. It's Valg or engagement season on the ships where the titled and wealthy try to pair off their children and Elliot is back, Leo's first love, an he appears determined to avenge her breaking up with him. Can they get over all this and can they help get a better future in the ships.
It's an interesting read with complex character who have a variety of motivations and complex political macinations. ( )

A retelling of Jane Austen's Persuasion..but in space. It was fun and breezy. ( )

This Persuasion-ish SF YA is set in the same world as Donne’s Jane Eyre-ish Brightly Burning. Two hundred years in the future, humans live in spaceships in orbit around Earth. To save her family and their ship, nineteen year old Princess Leonie has to find a way to sell her water-filtration system or else accede to her father’s wishes by marrying for money.

This kept my interest until the end, but I wish that Donne had either made this purely historical fictional or else had jettisoned the “season” in which privileged upper-class teenagers are pressured to marry for wealth / titles / connections like it’s the 1800s. Spaceships have incredible potential to be more than a backdrop for historical social mores, and, if not for the Valg Season, with its pressures and expectations, Leo could have given much more attention to the injustice in the fleet.

Leo being a teenager also undercuts something I love about Persuasion -- teenage lovers reuniting is nice but just doesn’t have the same heartwarming poignancy as a second-chance romance for a woman old enough to be dismissed by her community as a spinster, who believes she’s missed her chances at any romance...

While I’m grumbling, I have no idea why the title. ( )

What a tangled web we read. Princess Leonie, or Leo as she prefers to be called, is about to endure the social torture known as the Valg Season. It's like the old coming out parties in high society, only it's held on one of the fancier space vessels circling earth as everyone awaits the planet returning to habitability following a gigantic volcanic eruption. Her younger sister, Carina, is far more excited about this 'finding a marriageable person' debacle than Leo is, but it's her responsibility as the older, more responsible sibling, to find someone rich enough who is willing to marry her as she's royalty.
Then comes the hacking of her aunt, the captain of the fleet's speech, opening the door to the possibility that there are people on other ships in danger of illness and starvation. Add in the mysterious pair she's rented the family ship to in order to stay afloat financially, the return of Elliot, the boy she's loved for age,s who she was engaged to for 12 hours until forced by her drunken father and her aunt to break it, lies, friends and foe who aren't who they seem to be, more questions than answers and a slam bang ending and you have a great YA space opera.

In this fun, and engaging story--billed as the Bachelorette set in space, with shades of Jane Austen--Princess Leonie (Leo) is tasked with saving her family's fading standing by landing a wealthy fiancé even though she'd rather research ways to save water on their space ship. When her ex-fiance and first love shows up during the Valg season (whn all the young nobles of the spaceships gather to find mates in an era of dwindling human population), Leo finds herself torn between her old flame and political intrigue. A swoony, enjoyable read with interesting, complex characters and diverse queer representation (gay, lesbian, demi, and ace characters, among others). ( )
