bookshelves: epic-fantasy, read-2020, young-adult

It's so so rare to find ace/biromantic rep (and #ownvoices at that!) in fantasy and I absolutely crave more of it. Kamai's insecurity in understanding herself, Kihan's journey with gender identity, and the obvious love and pain and hope the author poured into these discussions was so obvious on the page. I also direct you to this brilliant article the author wrote about being queer on page and closeted in real life. I've been thinking about it for days. So powerfully said.

Drakeryn Thanks for the link! I've always wondered what "mixed" pronouns (like she/they) signify, so it was very interesting to see her explain what it means to her.
