Thank you so much to Harper Voyager AU for sending me a copy of this amazing book for review.
This review is actually quite hard to write, without raving madly about specific aspects of the book and ruining everything for everyone, but I shall try!
What’s it about: Based a a world with three suns, where darkness only falls once every three years, a young girl’s father is killed, she decides to attend a secret school for assassins to get revenge with her awesome shadow-controlling powers.
What I thought: It’s one of my favourites of the year. This book is just so damn good. I wish I had never read it so I could read it again for the first time.
The stuff I loved:
The world-building is phenomenal and unique.
The characters are awesome. Every single one. Even the ones I hated.
The story is awesome.
It’s hilarious. There are footnotes throughout the book that are so clever and hilarious. There was one in particular that made me spit my tea all over the room it was so funny.
When the book claimed to be murdery and stabby it actually was! (what does that say about me?).
The stuff I didn’t love:
My ship sank…
Having to make the decision whether reading certain parts of this book on a plane while seated next to a stranger was… inappropriate. Yeah this book should be firmly placed in the New Adult category, and not YA.
The fact that I have to wait what already feels like an eternity for the next one.
but those are my only criticisms because it was seriously awesome and a new favourite!
I give it ALL THE STARS!!!
