Ocean’s Echo is a standalone romantic space adventure set in the same universe as Everina Maxwell’s successful debut, Winter’s Orbit.

When Tennal, a wealthy socialite, inveterate flirt, and walking disaster, is caught using his telepathic powers for illegal activities, the military decides to bind his mind to someone whose powers of compulsion are strong enough to control him.

Enter Lieutenant Surit, son of a disgraced general. Desperate to return a pension to his other father, Lieutenant Surit agrees to join Tennal and recruit him into the army, a task that seems impossible even for someone with Surit’s mind-control abilities.

Tennal just wants to escape, but Surit is not all that she seems. And his bond can only be the key to his freedom.

This was my first Maxwell book, but it won’t be my last. The writing was beautiful and compelling, and the story had a great balance of sci-fi elements and character development. It didn’t get too bogged down in science, and the story had a great plot and a focus on the emotional journeys of the characters.

The world building was fantastic. The galaxy and its mysteries seemed vast, although the civilizations and technologies relevant to the story were well defined. The excellent writing style made everything easy to understand and follow, even when things got a bit complex or nebulous. There was enough information about the galaxy in general to keep me intrigued and hopeful for more books set in it, but the story never lost its focus on the characters, relationships, and factions at the heart of the current conflict. The stories of the characters, their powers and civilization were fascinating.

The plot was quite full of the intrigue, political conspiracy and also military strategy. There were many twists and turns that I didn’t see coming. The pacing was a bit slow at first, but that didn’t bother me because the time was used to really get to know the characters and establish the basic foundations of society that became necessary to understand later plot points. There was plenty of action in the second half, and the entire story was filled with interesting psychic powers, space shenanigans, and various military factions vying for power.

The focus of the entire story, however, was the relationship between Tennal and Surit. Tennal was an absolute disaster of a man who sabotaged almost every relationship and thrived on total chaos. He was also a mind reader, someone with the power to read the minds of others persons. After being drafted into the army for all of his chaotic behavior, he meets Surit, the lieutenant in charge of keeping him in line by creating a neural connection between the two that would give him full control of Tennal.

Surit foiled those plans because he is literally THE BEST guy with an impeccable moral compass. They fake the voiceover and work on a plan to get Tennal out that doesn’t go as planned when they get caught up in all the political issues threatening civil war. Their relationship was super slow and didn’t involve a lot of heat, but the gradual growth of emotional intimacy and trust between the two of them was great. It offered a fun and unique sci-fi twist on several common romantic tropes, including soul mates, forced closeness, and fake dating.

I also want to mention that there are parts of this book that impressed me. There was a passage that described space in an intriguing way that made me think of its vastness and its similarity to the human mind. The prose was so beautiful that the words almost transported me to another dimension.

Needless to say, I definitely recommend this book, especially if you like sci-fi stories and are looking for one with a slow, subdued queer romance. The plot, the characters, and the writing were all fantastic. This will not be the last Maxwell book I read.

Ocean’s Echo, another standalone novel set in the same science fiction universe. Ocean’s Echo is a queer space opera featuring politics, coups, military corruption, people with psychic powers, and alien artifacts. And yes, romance. As in Winter’s Orbit, the story is delicately balanced between the political-military plot and the complicated relationship that develops between the protagonists of M/M in the midst of all the action; Maxwell seems to prefer to focus on building a relationship between two people rather than completing those feelings.

I wouldn’t mind a little more heat, but overall Maxwell obviously has a lot of fun playing with romantic tropes, which I find very entertaining. The first 2/3 of the book were extremely fast paced and the last 1/3 was a bit chaotic with less room for relationships than I would have liked. I also think the climactic mental battle situation with alien artifacts could have been written better (it felt a bit silly for some reason), but I appreciated the way it expanded on world building.

Overall, it’s a very enjoyable read and has a lot more genre dynamism than many romance crossover books achieve. I’m definitely looking forward to the next Everina Maxwell book, whether it’s in the same universe or not.
