I bought this book shortly after it was released in July, but because of my aforementioned addiction to the Throne of Glass series, this was pushed by the wayside until after I finished The Glass Ocean. And boy, was it worth the wait.
This is the second book by Beatriz Williams that I’ve read, the first being The Glass Ocean, which she wrote with two other women, so I wasn’t sure how this book would be. But this is one of the standout books of 2018 for me, and I’m still chapped that it didn’t win in it’s category for the Goodreads awards.
Miranda is a very complex character, but one that you can’t help but love. She isn’t perfect, but she is portrayed so realistically that I feel like she is one of my great-aunts. Her journey was both uplifting and heartbreaking, and by the end of the story I wanted nothing more than to hug her and tell her she’s amazing.
My rating: 5 stars, no question.
