      I received this book as an ARC though Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.I liked the blend of fantasy, and science fiction in this book. I liked that Veni was from a much more technologically advanced civilization, and race that they never looked down on the people they met. They were curious, and open, and willing to learn from those around them, and I appreciated that. I liked their developing relationship with Wystan. I liked how Veni treasured the things that made Wystan different, [...]

      Lovely blend of sci-fi and fantasy - I would almost call it solarpunk.Veni is a winged alien from a culture where everyone lays eggs and is categorized by the length of their wings. When hir spacecraft crashes on a world of dwarves and humans who categorize by gender, Veni realizes instantly appearances aren't the only things different about the new world. Not all of the dwarves and humans communicate by speech either, as ze learns when ze meets a human man who can only talk with his handsThe no [...]

      Featured on All Our Worlds!I’ve been looking forward to this story ever since I spotted it on the Forthcoming list. And I wasn’t disappointed: there’s a curious alien, a welcoming community, and plenty of diversity.Veni crashlands on Earth after escaping a perilous political situation on hir homeworld. Luckily, ze has translation software, so ze can talk to the people ze meets. Veni’s species doesn’t have gender, so they use ze/hir pronouns for everybody. (Social distinction is instead [...]

      Disclaimer: I am part of the publisher that published this work.That said, I adored this book. It's amazingly sweet and cute and the way H.R. Harrison blends the high-tech of Veni's world with the craftsmanship and lower tech of the dwarven/human/etc. world is amazing. I had to keep putting it down because the two MCs were so cute, and it's just ugh, I'm going to re-read it about 23732074 times.

      This review was originally posted on Just Love.* I received an advanced copy of this novel in exchange for a fair and honest review. * Science fiction meets fantasy in this delightful short story about understanding, tolerance, and finding love against all odds. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this story I've never read anything quite like it, and I think it was a great blend of multiple genres, with interesting characters and a fantastic plot.I will admit that I' [...]

      I received a free copy via Inked Rainbow Reads in exchange for an honest review.This is a strange little story, in a good way. I found it interesting to view a fantasy setting through the eyes of an alien who is without a concept of gender and needs a translator to understand it.The writing is excellent, and I loved the concept. Veni, the alien, is misunderstood by the local inhabitants and assumed to be an angel. Just as Veni cannot comprehend a society divided by gender, the dwarves (who thems [...]

      From Stars They Fell is a wonderful debut novella from H.R. Harrison. The blend of sci fi and fantasy elements, spaceships and dwarves, translation chips and magic, works beautifully, and the main characters are both sympathetic and interesting.I loved the protagonist, Veni. Ze was truly alien and provided a unique perspective on the world on which ze crash-landed. We see hir make some faux pas, but ze also does a remarkable job of communicating and patching things up. There is some romantic ten [...]

      I was very interested in this story going into it, but I have to say a lot of it was lost on me. The first 60% of this story is world building, which is mostly irrelevant to the plot that finally and slowly starts up (not all of it but about 70% of it). For a story that’s only 20k words in length, I expect to finish in an hour or two at most. This story took me three weeks to read because I really saw no point in going back to it. The plot is simple and easy, when it does finally show up. And [...]

      3.5 stars. This intriguing, short, fish-out-of-water tale mixes Science Fiction with Fantasy in a wonderful blend, where aliens meet dwarves and internal computer programming translates and teaches sign language in next to no time at all.Veni is a wonderful main character. Ze is so open and curious about everything without being patronising or judgemental. It’s clear that Veni is from a much more advanced world, but ze finds plenty to admire amongst the industrious dwarves, while in Wystan ze [...]

      4.5 stars. This is a strange and delightful version of Snow White, which I wasn't expecting at all. Veni, an alien from a genderless species that has similarities with both insects and humans, crashes on a medieval fantasy world - the planet is referred to as Earth, but there was magic, as well as dwarves and a dark elf, so it wasn't really our Earth. There, Veni meets a handsome man, Wystan, who is deaf and communicates in sign language. Their bond is based on mutual attraction, but also on the [...]

      Life gets interesting when you realize there are so many people who are not just like you. So then you try to put people in categories just to keep track of them all. Then you realize that categorization is an evolutionary vestige left over from when we needed to make snap decisions for fight or flight, and human beings are too complex to put in just a few boxes. I think that's what H.R. Harrison is teaching us with this story. I don't often read short stories because you can't get caught up wit [...]

      This story was very hard to get into. It took me way too long to get through it, especially with it being a short story. From the very beginning I was just confused. I couldn't keep track of the characters from the very beginning. I'm pretty sure the main character wasn't human but again it was so hard to figure out who was who. I definitely did not like this story at all whatsoever.

      Content warnings: betrayal, sex, death, attempted murder, drugging of a character in an attempt to kill them, neopronoun use, non heterosexual relationships.Review can be found here at Blow Pop's Book Reviews.

    15. H.V. Corbin on said:

      The story is exotic and classic at the same time, as are the characters. Has flavors of Snow White but is definitely not your grandma's fairy tail. Veni and Wystan are perfect! I also especially love the dwarves!
