There is so much for Jason Kim to learn when he signs an agreement to live on the planet Perelan. However, Jason is willing to try anything to keep his new husband Ferran at his side.  

Changing Worlds includes the short story prequel Opening Worlds. The story has an intriguing plot highlighting the discrimination of an interspecies marriage. Perelan is a planet of empaths, ruled by a biased council of females steeped in tradition. Males are considered only as breeders and family servants, they have no civil rights. Because of their marriage, Ferran and Jason have become social trendsetters. Ferran is the first Perel to marry a human, plus Jason is the first human to live within the city’s borders. The storyline mainly features the challenges Jason is faced with learning the language, as well as the code of behavior. There is a touch of drama created by the opponents for change along with a few intimacy scenes. 

Overall, Cari Z’s Changing Worlds is an interesting political statement reflecting events in history of today’s world.
