    1. Traitors had a decent plot with good characters. There was political intrigue, assassinations, and plot twists. Yet, somehow the book failed to really light a fire of interest. I had no trouble finishing, but something was lacking, and I'm having difficulty putting my finger on what it was. I think I had trouble getting into the characters. The main character was pretty superficial in his taste of women. Perhaps that was my issue. He lacked flair and good taste.This book could have had more dram [...]

    2. Traitors has an sf premise: the book is set is another planet which humans colonized centuries ago and the people know it. However, mostly it reads like fantasy. The countries in this setting are islands so you need to have either a ship or an air-born shuttle to go from one country to the next. All high tech is controlled by one nation, Vorgel, and while other nations can use them, the Vorgellians keep tight reins on the tech so nobody else can build anything high tech, anything from laser pist [...]

    3. I rather enjoyed this book. It has a good blend of sci-fi and fantasy and I like the mix (it reminds me of earlier Anne McCaffrey/pern). I felt like the time skips were a little handwavey. (I find that when writing papers sometimes I rely on headings to lay the foundations for me, and I neglect building transitions. The time skips did that here.)It's an intriguing idea, though, to take these concepts that we take for granted as part of being human and then to isolate them and extrapolate them fo [...]

    4. I've read a lot of works by Rusch in the past year and any time there is a Storybundle that includes her work I'll automatically buy it. Unlike most of the other work by Rush that I've read, Traitors falls into the fantasy category rather than sci-fi. As usual I enjoyed her writing style and her world building ability. However, the plot and character development fell a little flat for me. The main character constantly chasing/fawning over a woman he had built up so much in his head grew old very [...]

    5. I thought the love affair was superficial and the woman, Sheba was so devoid of agency it was unsatisfying. I found myself skipping things. But I thought the world building was strong.
