A review by lyricallit
The Diviners, by Libba Bray



I have come to the unfortunate conclusion I am not Bray's audience. The historical fiction -meets-dark-fantasy premises intrigue, but the execution doesn't work for me. The pacing drags and the period slang comes across as a little tryhard.  I listened to over 40% before I felt genuinely engaged by the plot and eager to read on. But then even after the conflict wrapped, the ending drew out an extended, anticlimactic finish.
