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

This book had so many compelling elements! Mysteries, hidden childhood secrets, sisters at war with each other by force of tradition, and magical powers that can be anything from sensing emotions or compelling people or renting blood and marrow. There are faeries and types of chimera and vampires. There are cold queens and displaced soft princess with horns. Eva is so very gentle and soft, and it was actually really nice to have a princess exposed to horror and death who never got used to it and never turned off. I appreciate that. This is a book of violence and division, but also about self acceptance and refusal to lie down quietly and give up.
