3.5/5- Obviously read this because I’m a fan of the author’s fics. The writing was captivating, albeit a bit messy.

I liked the characters (Killian tho 😪) but the whole storyline felt convoluted with a lot of loose ends. It was also, ngl, kind of anticlimactic.

OUTSTANDING. I love Andrea's writing and I really loved this, my first of her original works! Phenomenally well crafted, completely exhilarating and thrilling read, divinely crafted with details that ground you in the setting and engage all your sense and characters as complex as any person. It's a heartbreaking tale that isn't, in the end. Ainsley is angry and clever and biting and sad and wonderful, a pleasure to read. Nate is hilarious and cute and an overbearing darling. Mason is. Just. Wow. ...more

Anderson's prose is irreverent, overblown, whimsical, nuanced and truthful.... All the things, essentially, one would be pleased to find in a friend.

Also, I read this book in one long stretch after working a 14 hr shift, the only reason being it was fucking impossible to find a stopping point. Engaging is not an adequate word, but it wil ...more

Read it one go and pulled an all-nighter, which speaks for itself. As always, beautiful prose and compelling characters. A must read. In desperate need of the sequel!
