's review

really liked it

I normally don’t enjoy reading novellas as I find that they aren’t long enough to really get into, but this particular story had me engaged from the first page. This was a very Romeo and Juliet-esque romance where love triumphs across cultural and language boundaries, but at the same time, all characters live to bask in their love. The story can be likened to many societal animosities found in the world today and helps to illustrate the fact that not everyone within those societies agrees that the battle should go on against all cost. The main characters in this story also go against all of the rules and cultural stereotypes to save a loved one. One thing that I especially enjoyed in this novella was the characters’ names. They are all unique but not hard to pronounce or remember. I thoroughly lost myself in the pages for an hour or so and recommend others do the same.
