bookshelves: must-read-2019, 2019, may, bw

3.5 stars, rounding up

I really liked this overall and Jemisin has some beautiful language here, but she was back on the high fantasy world building train for a part of this, so it was a little harder for me to stay interested in the beginning and part of the middle. (Yes, I understand this is high fantasy. Yes, I can recognize that she's really super good at it even as I understand that it's not my jam and that it still affects my overall enjoyment.)

That mother/daughter stuff, though? And all that community building? And the commentary on trauma? WHEW.

I give the overall series 4 1/2 stars. Highly recommend!
