I was excited to read this book because gender bent King Arthur in Space! But I was a bit disappointed. It often felt like it was trying too hard, the characters seemed underdeveloped, and I wanted more ancient Arthurian backstory. I will probably still read the sequel, though. Merlin was my favorite character (and the most interesting, imo) and I want to find out more about his backstory. 3/5 stars.

Wow...I'm more or less speechless. Can't quite decide how I feel about the overall effect of the book yet, but I did enjoy it, and I wish there were more. An original story to be sure, and one that appeals to students of prehistory like myself.

chaoticgoodhufflepuff That sounds really interesting! 3w

Pleased to add this new acquisition to my TBR pile! Which is already the size of a small yurt, but that's beside the point.

chaoticgoodhufflepuff I really enjoyed this one! ❤️ 3w

Isn't Flavia de Luce a charming girl?

I loved this book! Atmospheric, moving (legit almost cried TWICE), and epic: an excellent conclusion to a series with a special place in my heart. Anything to do with mythology, folklore, or fairy tales is an automatic "will read" from me. Add medieval Russian history, a kick-ass heroine with a believable character arc, and a frost demon/death god love interest and I'm pretty well sold. Listened to WotW on audiobook, image of TBatN. ⭐⭐⭐⭐1/2

"After my mother's death, I wash my hands of you: [...] you and I will be as separate as if we had never known each other. You need not think that because we chanced to be born of the same parents, I shall suffer you to fasten me down by even the feeblest claim: I can tell you this--if the whole human race, ourselves excepted, were swept away, and we two stood alone on the earth, I would leave you in the old world, and betake myself to the new."

currerbelle I always like to share this quote with my brother on National Siblings' Day (or whatever it's called). Ms. Brontë just says it better than Hallmark ever could. 💚💙💜👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 2mo
