I will say the end of this book is phenomenal. Like, easily the best part. And it was so good that I want to continue on.

But the rest, especially the ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This book does tackle a lot of important themes, and I would say that the heart of this novel is honestly feminism.

There is also a little bit of disability representation in this book, from another character that I really liked. Again, this book does have a lot of good, it just also has a lot of predictability.

Sometimes while reading, I felt like this was maybe a middle grade book. Because the writing is well done, but the clues are so glaringly obvious it makes for a poor reading experience.


At least, it was for me. It is nurtured among the vulnerable and broken. It is our bodies crying out for justice, seeking to right centuries of wrongs. Between the feministic themes, to the bonds of sisterhood, to the lengths we are willing to go for the ones we love, I want more from this world, these characters, and this author.

And I honestly am excited to continue on with this series.Book Description.
