This isn't normally something I would pick up but my book club suggested it, and I'm glad they did. Beautiful writing that made me feel like I knew the marsh that Kya grew up in. I loved the main character and ached for her. The book also speaks to society and how we treat each other. There's also a touch of murder mystery. A lovely book that I would definitely recommend.

SarahHarts_books I have been wanting to read this for so long!! I have it on hold at my library. So I'm trying to wait patiently. But I REALLY want to read it already!! Everyone who has read it seems to love it. I can't wait until it's my turn!! 😊 1mo
Lisaw13 @SarahHarts_books With all the hype I didn‘t think I‘d like it as much as I did. Worth the wait 🤗 1mo

This was a quick enjoyable read. There were parts that I thought "this is a bit unrealistic", but the twist at the end made it work and all come together. Definitely didn't see the twist coming.

Okay so my #18in2018 is more like 25, but I grouped the series together so it looks like 16 - a little fudging 😋

Lisaw13 @Cinfhen I did the audio for that and it was good - I don't normally like audio books because my mind wanders, but the narrator did a great job. 6mo

Wow. This book is seriously dark. I knew it was about assassins but still...

It actually took me about a quarter of the book to get into it and I almost bailed, but then I was totally sucked in and couldn't put it down. Definitely recommend. Can't wait for the next in the series. Again... wow.
