This is a novel about a girl named Palym who is exalted as Sidereal Exalted. She is thrown into the celstial politics and has not only to cope with her changes but also has to uncover a plot against her and her circle mates.

I found this novel lacking. The plot is quite contrived and the motivations seem not so well thought-out. The protagonist is rescued from great danger because a Sidereal does sacrifice herself and that is all the reason you get why the protagonist is put through a boot-camp in order to become the successor in said same circle. Why does the Sidereal sacrifice herself for the unknown protagonist? Why does the protagonist have to fill the ranks in the circle? Another example: The circle revisits locations throughout creation in order to track items that may have been planted there by the unknown villain in order to investigate. But the investigation is reduced to traveling there finding the object and observiing the mayham that was caused. No questions are asked about how the item came there in the first place or which persons were involved in the incident.

Overall you get the feeling that this story could as well be a police story set in the present day, with a bomber as the antagonist. The exalted stlye window dressing is that the police officers are sidereals and the investigated Exigents are some kind of magical bomb.
