it was amazing
bookshelves: fantasy, best-of-2020

Oh. My. Goodness.

This is exactly the kind of Christian-produced fantasy I'm ever searching to read:

- A unique fantasy world with awesome settings and believable cultural worldbuilding?
- Characters who aren't predictable and yet are always authentic as to who they're supposed to be?
- A plot featuring a number of unique and unexpected twists that keep the story constantly moving?
- And, most importantly, relevant themes and thematic questions that are difficult, painful, and yet utterly important for living life well in a messy society?

This book checks all those boxes, and I adore it. I shouldn't have gotten it on Kindle because now I'm going to have to go out and get it in paperback because it was that good and I want the whole trilogy now.

Talk about a gut-wrenching and utterly entertaining read.

Highly recommended.

Rating: 4.5 Stars (Excellent).
