This book is fantastic in the way it features two main characters that are not differently abled- Payal is neurodivergent and Canto is paraplegic and wheelchair-bound and both are from a Psy society that eliminates children with both characteristics but yet both have made it to adulthood and are thriving and it’s amazing to read their journey. This is probably one of my all-time favourites in the Psy-Changeling series. In addition to the absolutely gorgeous love story between Payal and Canto, it was great to see old favourite characters in this. At this point, this sees is pretty much an ensemble production with some focus on the two main characters. I’m pretty troubled by “The Architect”’s story arch and this whole thing with the scarabs which keep attacking the net but it contributes to the suspense of the series and is why I would recommend reading this as part of the series rather than as a standalone. Highly recommend this!!! I loved this addition the the series.
