Wow I l loved this book! It was genre bending (fantasy / sci-fi / thriller) and was so easy to get into. All the characters are so flawed and there’s so many morally grey characters and situations that keep you on your toes and make you unsure who you should root for (the answer is probably no one but the characters are so murky that there’s no clear line for so much of the book.)

This is one of those books where I don’t even know where to start, what to compare it to, because I can’t think of anything. And hard to describe without giving it all away. Just read it, especially if you like morally grey characters or stories where everyone is both the hero and villain.  Also, there’s a teen who fiercely loves her dog and the big scary dude with a soft heart trope. 

Terrifying, heart breaking, enthralling, pulse pounding, complex...and somehow made me want to give hot cocoa to virtually everyone. A great read for someone who wants some SFF without romance storylines. 

CW: suicidal ideation, suicide attempts (pretty detailed so if this is even a hint of a trigger, I’d avoid or tread cautiously), toxic/abusive relationships, religious trauma.
