I read Rebel, the third book in the Las Anclas series. (And then I read Thick as Thieves.)

Now, I love this series. I really do. It's a great improvement over the LGBT-friendly books of my own youth that were all Very Special Episode - instead, it's a fun series with some gays, and any romance drama they have is the sort you expect teens to have. The nearest thing they have to coming out as gay is having a change power and parents who don't like that sort of thing. (And while I suppose it is technically post-apocalyptic, it's more like post-post-post. Lots of parties, and they have raccoons that build cities. Oh, and also exploding glass trees and a king who wants to take over the world, so, you know, standard fantasy stuff.)

However, I'm not sure the math works. Read more... )

Anyway, nothing big happened in this installment, but they've set up the final book in the quartet very nicely and I'm itching to read it. And every one of you who hasn't read the whole series really ought to.
