Professor Tikaya Komitopis knew that bringing Admiral Rias Starcrest home to meet her family wouldn’t be easy, not when he led the fleet that decimated her nation during the war. She isn’t surprised when people believe she’s been brainwashed, that Rias is still loyal to the empire, and that he has nefarious plans for her homeland. She is, however, surprised when Rias’s designs to build a submarine lead them to stumble across an ancient secret shrouded in mystery, time, and lies.Thoughts on Decrypted: I really enjoyed this series. To the point where I'm finally dusting off my copies of The Emperor's Edge because I dig the world so much. (Yes, I've had the EE series on my Kindle for ages and I love Lindsay Buroker's writing, so this isn't a hardship at all. I just have an embarrassment of riches when it comes to my TBR pile.) (I'm sure all book lovers know how that goes. I can almost hear the lament of "I need more hours in the daaaaay to get to all the ones I want to get to" echoing in the air right now.)
If revealed, this secret could mean devastation for Tikaya’s entire nation. It could also mean choosing between her people... and the man she loves.
So. Tikaya and Rias. I expected friction when she brought him back to her island, but the amount of flack they got was rough. Really rough. Given what they uncovered, I get where the government-types were coming from, but I like Rias and I didn't like how Tikaya was viewed with suspicion just for being around him.
*gives everyone trying to get between the two brilliant lovebirds a sour lemon face*
Which reminds me, I ADORED how they both had a tendency to get so involved in their work that they became completely blind to the world around them. And I loved how they both took pains to show their interest in the other's work, too. It was just adorably cute. *squishes them together and makes lovey-dovey sounds*
Okay. Enough of that. I'm off to properly meet Sicarius and see what dangerous shenanigans he gets himself into.
