Notes: The wait is over, the anticipation was worth it, and I have a new favorite book!

This book was compelling, fascinating, and driven by the characters. It was definitely different from anything that I’ve read before, filled with fliers for shows, wanted posters, actual three pages worth of song lyrics, poems, and told in the form of a play, as well as regular book format. It was beautifully done, and my imaginary hat goes off to the author for a fantastical job well done!

Told in various languages as well, this book features strong female characters, dancers at adult clubs, rebellion, a unique magical system, music, lyrics, and even a girl with a secret that can’t be discovered least she be killed or worse.

{Insert Goodreads Book Description}

I’ve been wanting to read this for months, and now that I have I shall take it off my Anticipated Reads page. I loved it, though will admit that it was a bit of a slow build to an epic finale, that I sincerely hope this is a book one, and that the cover art does the book justice. It’s sad, a lot of the time, but its also got drama, shadow puppets, and even death plays a major character in this novel.

I haven’t read the author’s previous series The Girl From Everywhere and now it’s soared to the near top of my list of ‘needing to read and needing to read it now’ books. The author is a new favorite of mine, and does a splendid job in capturing readers attention from the very first page. You are drawn in until the very end, and I read this all in one sitting, it was that good.

This marks yet another book that reached far beyond my anticipated reads and I know there will be many more to come despite it being almost December, for this year has been filled with favorite after favorite read.

I feel that if you love breathtaking, original fantasy stories, then you will definitely appreciate this gem of a book. 5/5 stars for a book that was well worth the wait, and I eagerly look forward to reading more by this author!

Until next time,
