adventurous dark emotional mysterious tense medium-paced

5.0

Phenomenal. It begins like a typical YA novel with a rowdy night on the river and gets progressively more intricate through seamless weaving of complex stories through generations. 10/10 EVERYONE should read this book — it has everything. Ex. lore/mythology, fantasy magic, academic setting, historical fiction flashbacks, unlikely romance, a model father/daughter relationship, queer and trans side characters….

5.0

I absolutely loved this book. 

This book reminds me what great YA fiction should be like, and took me back a decade to when life is hectic, and confusing, but wonderful as a 16 year old. 

There are difficult themes in this book that everyone will grapple with differently, but the acknowledgement that a country was built on slavery is an important issue for everyone to work through. 

I laughed, I cried, I wanted to smack some characters, my chest tingled at the romance scenes. 

This book was such a great YA SFF book and I'm so glad teens gave books like this to read now. Thank you so much Tracy Deonn!
