A review by lmwanak
The Broken Crown, by Michelle West


This is my second time reading this. I'm catching nuances that I didn't get before. I remember the first time I read the series, it felt as if some characters was just dropped in out of the blue (particularly Jay and the Aterafin House). But now, I can see glimpses of the total story, especially when Diora encounters the Voyani. And it was a delight to read Sagara's prose and the Japanese influence of the Dominion. Can't wait to read the next one, which is sitting at home on my shelf.
