Canada Reads Shortlist 2021

If you want a book about oppressed women in a magical realism historical fiction, there are several much better books to read than this one: The Young Elites trilogy by Marie Lu; The Queen of the Tearling trilogy by Erika Johansen; Graceling (first in a trilogy) by Kristen Cashore; The Riddle of the Wren by Charles de Lint; Mistborn quadrology by Brandon Sanderson... just for starters.

Perfect book for Covid-fatigue. Light, well written with a decent plot and a HEA.

I wonder if this book was written before Polk's first trilogy and only picked up for publication once those were successful? It's definitely not as thoughtful as they were.

Unfortunately the ending went on too long and a few too many wishes were fulfilled all in a row. Could've left the solution to collars to another book; having the solution dumped on the reader in a rush felt unearned.

I didn't read the description closely before I picked this up, so of course I assumed that Ianthe was a tall dark handsome dyke, based on the name. Nope, all het. Sigh!
