The Sounds of Stars
by Alechia Dow (Inkyard, 2020); audiobook read by Joy Sunday and Christian Barillas (Harlequin, 2020)
A SF invasion narrative serving unabashedly as an allegory for race relations. Though the character viewpoint is padded out by constant small repetitions, Ellie and M0Rr1S remain appealing outsiders. Their arc trends towards YA slush but is redeemed by several astute wrong-footings.
