really liked it
bookshelves: austen, dystopian, fantasy, romance, ya

As an homage to Jane Austen's Persuasion, I thoroughly enjoyed For Darkness Shows the Stars. The frequent nods to the source were appreciated, but the plot did not cling too faithfully to the original.

As a dystopian work, this is kind of odd - less gritty and disturbing than most, but I guess that's to be expected in what is more romance than anything else.
