After touring the rural areas of Panga, Sibling Dex (a Tea Monk of some renown) and Mosscap (a robot sent on a quest to determine what humanity really needs) turn their attention to the villages and cities of the little moon they call home.

They hope to find the answers they seek, while making new friends, learning new concepts, and experiencing the entropic nature of the universe.

Becky Chambers's new series continues to ask: in a world where people have what they want, does having more even matter?

They're going to need to ask it a lot.

Content Warningstalk of bugs, insects, and spiders, talk of death (people and animals), death of a wild fish, discussions around disability.

Read my review of A PSALM FOR THE WILD-BUILT!

Mosscap is perfect and no one could change my mind about that. I always love Becky Chambers writing and stories, but always wish they were just a tad longer. It seems like the ending always gets a little rushed and cut off to keep it under a certain length, which means I feel cheated out of the end of the story.

However, I absolutely adored this book and it was such a good time. The discussions around community and how your home, which you've left, being the past for you but present and future for others had me tearing up the entire time!

I highly recommend reading these as they are short and sweet, while still answering some of those Big Questions!

Have you read this book? What was your favourite part?
