Prayer for the Crown Shy, Becky Chambers ( hardback, August 2022)
After touring the rural areas of Panga, Sibling Dex (a Tea Monk of some renown) and Mosscap (a robot sent on a quest to determine what humanity really needs) turn their attention to the villages and cities of the little moon they call home. They hope to find the answers they seek, while making new friends, learning new concepts, and experiencing the entropic nature of the universe. Becky Chambers's new series continues to ask: in a world where people have what they want, does having more even matter?
Book 2 in the 'Monk & Robot' science fiction series. Book 1 was A Psalm for the Wild-Built. Fans of Becky Chambers describe her writing as " a warm hug of a book". She is known for her imaginative world-building and character-driven stories.
