it was amazing
bookshelves: 5-stars-2019, f-f

I’m writing this review at 2am so bear with me.

This book is everything I have ever wanted. Necromancy? Here for it. Lesbians? Always down. A badass fantasy/sci-fi turned whodunnit? YES.

This book was casually riding the 4 star train up until I hit 75%. At that point I planned on going to sleep (reader I did not go to sleep). I stayed up for an extra 2 hours (I think) to finish this book. The end plot twists had me shouting in my bedroom (sorry dad) and stopping to take deep breaths.

The characters are absolutely fantastic and the storyline is so original and fresh. Everything about this book is one big *chef’s kiss*.

If you take away anything from this review I hope it’s the urge to preorder. Because you absolutely should.

(Special thanks to the publisher who sent me an e-arc to read and review and also to Rhiannon for all but putting this book in my hands)
