Too fondly have I loved these stars;
all these galaxies we once called ours.


A beautiful love story in verse.

The relationship between two goddesses, one the embodiment of a galactic creation and the other of cosmic destruction, is tempestuous at best. They create and they destroy and then they do it all over again. Seya and Mia use their divine magic to make pulsars and n

This book was beautiful in every way.

First, the art. If the beautiful cover wasn't enough, the background to every poem is a picture of stars, galaxies and space stuff.

The poems themselves tell a coherent story about two goddesses making stars and galaxies, and also having... relationship problems that are surprisingly human?! The poems are all about a similar topic and yet different, I never got bored while reading them, even though I usually find collections repetitive.

All in all, I loved this

I'm afraid I don't much have the brain for poetry... I tend to read it much like prose. So this book passed by very fast for me, and as a result my thoughts are pretty basic.

-The structure of the poetry was pretty cool. I'll probably go back and look at the rhyme scheme a bit, I liked that it wasn't just free verse which is the easier choice. I think the rhyming varied from poem to poem but I don't really remember?

-I liked all the illustrations. :)

-The narrator changes every couple pages but the

I don't know if I'm totally qualified to judge the poetry of this stunning little book - my English Lit A-level was quite a while ago now, and it's not as if any school course can really teach you about poetry, not in a way that matters (unless you were blessed with a truly amazing teacher, maybe).

All I can say is that I loved it. The beautiful cover grabbed my attention, and the concept - two cosmos-creating goddesses and their romance - convinced me to take a risk on this verse-novella. I've n

Overall, I liked Birthing Orion. The poetry was lovely, and I liked the way the rhyme scheme changed with different poems. The only thing I would change is adding more detail. I feel like I would have been able to relate more to Seya and Tia (I don't know why it says Mia on the summary here, the goddess of destruction is named Tia in the book) if there was more detail about them in the book and I understood them better. Maybe I would get more out of the book if I reread it, but on my first read, ...more

So this is a sapphic space fantasy poetry collection, which is coming out on October 9th and I've just learnt about its existence and I'm so excited to read it!
