I loved most of this book. Loved the fictional world, the mythology, the tension, the writing, the commentary on the origins of patriarchy. About 2/3 of the way through, though, I started to lose interest. I would space out listening to the audiobook and so I missed some chunks of plot. I'm not sure if this was my fault or the book's, but it seemed to me like what began as super original turned kind of predictable. I'm like, of course Carmen is part of the resistance! Duh. Also, of course Mateo is evil. Zero surprise there. Obviously Dani is going to be forced to continue to spy on Mateo in subsequent books. Also there was a scene that bugged me where Dani overhears the exact piece of information she needs -- that always makes me roll my eyes.

There's a queer romance element in this that is pretty well done (IMHO). I think this book will get labeled LGBTQ pretty quickly, but it's more exciting if you don't know what kind of love triangle you're getting with the three-person-marriage thing.

I think this was a fun take on a forest lead story. It was a book that i loved the diversity and the fantsay elements. This book def deals wtih harder topics like drugs and abuse the imapct it has on thier lives. I think the highlight of this book was also sister dymancis that made this book so captivating, i also really enjoyed the god dynamocs at the heart of this read! This book did had some overal pacing issues but a soild read!!

I though this was soild end to the series. I also liked that all the books in this series was super different. i also loved how this whole series wrapped up!! It was super quick read and this read also had some familar elements that remidnds me of other mythology series! It was a super fun read that had some LGBTQ elements. It was a really fun read and i am super excited to see if we get more books set in this world soon!!

I thought this was such a fun read. I loved reading all these stories following the presents characters. They were all super fun and short stories. I thought some of them could have used a bit more basic info i felt a tad lost not having been caught up on the current books. I also really am now more motivated to actually catch up. I also just thought the stories were fun and dived into smaller assets of mythology . I also really liked learning about Irsh mythology.… (mais)
