All the Windwracked Stars

All the Windwracked Stars - Elizabeth Bear Though much of this book is set during the end of the world, which makes it somewhat of a downer, the characters are so interesting that it's a fun book to read. The ending is not so much of a surprise as it is a perfectly fit glove for the earlier sections of the story. The emotional depth of the characters is just a touch overdone in some areas, with the characters being overly perceptive of each other's emotions (especially the perceptiveness of the 19-year-old character, but I suppose it makes sense, because he makes a living understanding other people's emotional cues). I think that fans of the Black Jewels Trilogy by Anne Bishop will love this book.
