I barely read anything during the last few months of 2019. I couldn't focus, largely in part to persistent anxiety, but we had a death in the family, too, that made me listless and inattentive. I slowly made my way through this book though and finished it today. I would've liked a little more at the end to wrap up one plot point without any ambiguity so the wait for the third volume would be easier. Still, I enjoyed being swept away.
