Medusa Uploaded by Emily Davenport – This has a focus on some really great friendships. The main character, Oichi, and her Medusa unit becomes an inseparable pair and I really loved how integrated the unit becomes in her life. The other medusa unit users become a tight knit group despite the age and social gaps as well.
The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers- Another one that focuses on relationships and really all of these are worth mentioning because they are so varied!
Thrawn by Timothy Zahn – I was determined to find a TTT list to place Thrawn on, and here it is! Thrawn has a really great friendship/partnership with Eli Vanto. Think along the lines of Sherlock and Watson’s friendship and how well that works.
The Girls from Alcyone by Cary Caffrey – Really the relationships outside of Sigrid and Suko really shine in the second and third book of this series but it’s so worth mentioning here! I love these badass ladies and the love they have for each other, they will go to great ends to protect each other. It’s the ultimate girl group.
The Red Rising trilogy by Pierce Brown – Hands down, Darrow and Sevro. I love their banter with each other and how Sevro doesn’t sugar coat anything for Darrow.
Bitch Planet series by Kelly Sue DeConnick – The women on the prison planet, specifically the main group, are pretty fantastic. They have deal with some intense BS on this planet and they stick together.
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyere – Cinder and Iko are just amazing friends, and I adore their interactions and sisterhood (depsite one being an AI).
