I'd give this one a 3.5 - the central conceit is really intriguing, but Walton covers so much chronology that I always felt like I was skimming a bit. Frequently several years pass in a single chapter. Many of the secondary characters are really just...more

Doesn't quite live up to E & P or Fangirl. Rowell has some great character work and some very apt insights into marriage, parenting, work and the conflicts between them. But the good elements were lessened instead of enhanced by the gimmicky plot...more

Predictable, but still an enjoyable read.

Enjoying the plot, but it's the characters that will keep me reading this series. I was a little afraid at the beginning that each of the Rat Queens was just going to be a broadly-sketched "type," but no, they are more complex than that. I'm interest...more
