I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the characters that Lise MacTague has drawn in Depths of Blue. The world building is top-notch and the back stories of the characters are told in such a way as to move the story along and not in a pedantic, expository way. I would recommend anyone who likes a good sci-fi book give this a try.Rainbow Book Reviews
This is a proper sci-fi/action/adventure story with two very strong female leads and I absolutely loved it! Both Torrin and Jak are kickass women, and that was such a refreshing change—there’s no tough butch here rescuing a weak femme damsel in distress. They can both look after themselves and they therefore have a lovely tension between them from the start. This is part one of a trilogy and I cannot wait to get into book two—I love MacTague’s story-telling, her narrative and descriptive skills, and the universe she’s created. Excellent lesbian sci-fi, of which there isn’t enough, so this is a brilliant addition to that genre.The Lesbian Review
…absolutely a must-read novel. Lise MacTague has a really refreshing take on this genre. Her world is well created and different enough to make it interesting. Her story moves at a good pace, lingering only on important moments. Her characters are both gorgeously written, full of insecurities and real.Casey the Canadian Lesbrarian
…I rather enjoyed going along on its smooth, well-trod road full of tropes like: mistaken identities, space opera-ish drama, mounting sexual tension, women passing as men in the army, big patriarchal bad guys, and that-thin-line-between-love-and-hate. Oh, and some pretty steamy sex scenes.
