Heart of the Covenant
Hedriar has been chosen to represent her homeworld within the Galactic Covenant. There she'll meet new friends and discover that people aren't as different as all that.
This collection features five cosy stories about the Galactic Covenant and is perfect for fans of Becky Chambers' works or of Star Trek's more quiet and character-oriented episodes.
In Heart of the Covenant, five stories explore ties of friendship, family and culture, embracing our differences and our similarities.
Having applied to be an ambassador for her people within the Galactic Covenant, Hedriar has relocated to Cerulean Station, one of the Covenant’s largest residential stations. There, she’ll spend the next years sharing her own culture and learning about the Covenant’s as part of an exchange programme between the two.
Hedriar may not have the most detailed of plans of what, or even how, to share the aspects of her culture that matter most to her, but she’s got enthusiasm, family and new-found friends at her side. She’ll figure it out, and along the way she’ll learn that what people value most may not be so different at the core.
Heart of the Covenant is a cosy, low-stakes science fiction collection with a strong focus on slice-of-life narratives.
