I am super excited to read this book every night. It's your basic YA fantasy novel but I'm loving it. McEwan's story blends a lot of Sarah J. Maas, some Suzanne Collins, and a bit of Game of Thrones. The lead character is a feisty young woman who could be TSTL if she didn't have the skills to back it up. Sadly, I spoiled the ending by reading the promo for the next book in the series, but I am still excited to see how the author gets there.
Earlier this week, I polished off Murder Lo Mein by Vivien Chien. Happy to report that it looks like the author will avoid the trope of a romantically indecisive heroine. I love this series so much that the next book is already available for me to pick up at the library.
