A review by kmj91
The Broken Crown, by Michelle West


4.5 stars, another great Michelle West book

At this point, what can I even say about Michelle West's books that I haven't already? Is this a well-written tapestry of a book that introduces dozens of arresting characters? Check. Does the plot start out slow but is filled with such insightful and thoughtful worldbuilding that it reads much quicker than it feels like it should? Check. Is Jewell ATerafin in this one as well continuing to gain power and influence that you marvel at how much she has grown? Check. West is so absurdly good at kicking off fascinating fantasy series that its almost embarrassing. I can't wait to continue on with this one.
