    Disclosure I am friends with the author, but have been a fan of the Mango series before that, so feel free to read my review in light of both of those things The core story is an excellent, grand scale mystery with plenty of plot twists that I genuinely didn t except, and adds depth to the long standing Mangoverse cast for long time readers I can t spoil anything, but I genuinely enjoyed seeing the Mangoverse having to deal with the much darker theme of ecoterrorism than what they face in th Disclosure I am friends with the author, but have been a fan of the Mango series before that, so feel free to read my review in light of both of those things The core story is an excellent, grand scale mystery with plenty of plot twists that I genuinely didn t except, and adds depth to the long standing Mangoverse cast for long time readers I can t spoil anything, but I genuinely enjoyed seeing the Mangoverse having to deal with the much darker theme of ecoterrorism than what they face in their usual adventures.The plot rockets along, except for the three chapter flashback which I felt slowed it down The flashback adds some romantic tension, but slows down the exciting mystery This wasn t a huge minus in my opinion, and your feelings on those chapters will likely come down to whether you wantaction orromance.Some really lush descriptions of Perach the main setting and other regions, so if that s the kind of thing you enjoy you ll get swept up in returning to this little world, or s...

    3.5 stars I basically feel about this book as I do about the others in the series it s a little unpolished in terms of its writing and simple plot, but it s a pretty fun and charming read anyway It s a quick read full of queer and Jewish characters We have TWO beautiful, happy wlw relationships, the first trans woman in the series, and a little visit from our mlm couple thrown in at the end Since I don t have so much to say about the book itself, I d just like to add a cool thing I notic 3.5 stars I basically feel about this book as I do about the others in the series it s a little unpolished in terms of its writing and simple plot, but it s a pretty fun and charming read anyway It s a quick read full of queer and Jewish characters We have TWO beautiful, happy wlw relationships, the first trans woman in the series, and a little visit from our mlm couple thrown in at the end Since I don t have so much to say about the book itself, I d just like to add a cool thing I noticed about the characters Jewish perspectives This thing in particular I think speaks to the nuances of what ownvoices Jewish writers can achieve, because they re aware of these things.While t...

    Another excellent bit of fantasy from my favorite queer novelist I think Glassman s style is improving with time, too As a non Jew, I m interested to find outabout some of the religious details in her books while the works are not religious in tone, all the characters are Jewish and you rarely see that in fantasy novels The Olive Conspiracy is a bit darker than the first three novels, in that it deals with violence towards the working class, but it s still light enough in tone to not g Another excellent bit of fantasy from my favorite queer novelist I think Glassman s style is improving with time, too As a non Jew, I m interested to find outabout some of the religious details in her books while the works are not religious in tone, all the characters are Jewish and you rarely see that in fantasy novels The Olive...
