Do you really need another raving review of this book? Yes? Okay fine. LOL Do you remember when Six of Crows came out? Everyone was talking about it and how it was not even considered Young Adult because how well done it is. Well, this book right here is the new Six of Crows phenomenon of 2018. The best thing? It’s a Debut Author!!

Complex, detailed and enchanting, this book left me at awe. The fact that for the first time I feel like a YA fantasy novel tackles the magical world like real adult fantasy books really surprised me. It is a very long book for YA (around 700 pages). It was worth every word of it. (Warning: if you have some difficult time to get into the book due to the details of the world building, please proceed to the exit door ,  I mean please proceed anyway because a lot of action scenes and interesting plot revealing right after).  The author mentioned how she was inspired by her West African heritage. She did it perfectly and brilliantly  by blending culture reference and magical aspects. I find this very exciting because the African culture has so much to offer and they contributed  to the popular “magic” that we know about. So it’s nice to finally read about it!

Bonus point: the villain is amazing!! I don’t want to spoil EVEN A LITTLE bit so I will leave you with that. 

flaw

I honestly didn’t like the romance, it was not necessary. I thought the author could develop so much more interactions between the characters without all that romance adding in every single time.

  10. Your review pretty much mirrors my feelings aside from the romance haha. I am so antiromance, and I felt she kept this aspect so limited that I was more than ok with it. It seemed like such a blip in the grand scheme. A successful debut that raises so many relevant topics to light through brilliant and intelligent storytelling. I loved it. Great review Trang!
