A Desolation Called Peace, by Arkardy Martine

Another of the great modern Space Opera writers, Martine delivers a fitting and fun conclusion to the Teixcalaan duology. You can tell Martine is having fun with the names, cultures, and world-building. It’s a unique spin, impeccably written, and undeniably fun.

While the first story dealt with the mystery of the previous ambassador’s death and the political intrigue surrounding it, this deals with an outside threat. A mysterious alien species is wreaking havoc and the Teixcalaan Empire must figure out how to deal with it or if they can even communicate with it. The palace intrigue is still there though more on the periphery and playing out in fleet politics. We also get more of the Lsel Station politics and the ramifications to Mahit from her actions in the prior novel.

Desolation certainly lived up to its predecessor and in some ways surpassed it.
