Xich Si: bot maker, data analyst, mother, scavenger. But those days are over now-her ship …

Perhaps not the best introduction to the universehe

Having finished the book I still don't understand what 'bots' are in this, they're small but not too small and fix things but also provide touch?

I think I'm not really destined for romance, the plot is interesting until the main characters have a fight that feels needlessly dramatic.

Also one of the lovers is also a spaceship, and emotions cause displays to flicker or even loss of attitude control.
