Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan
YA Fantasy, 2018 by Jimmy Patterson Books, 385 Pages
What I Didn’t Like:
- Predictable. Of course this isn’t as big of a deal if it’s not a mystery book, but it’s still irritating. I wanted a little more shock and surprise.
- Lot of short clipped sentences, which gave it a strange pace.
- Epilogue made me roll my eyes. I wanted a different ending. I liked the way it ended before that epilogue.
What I Did Like:
- Loved the MC. She’s relatable, loveable, and enthusiastic. I wanted only good things for this girl.
- Excellent set up of exploring a group of girls literally a concubine for a king. It made a unique way to explore this fantasy world.
- Good lead into book 2. The world is set, the story is started, and you love the characters.
Who Should Read This One:
- Fantasy fans who want to explore a world in a different way.
- LGBTQ+ allies and readers.
My Rating: 4 stars
- Good fantasy explored in an interesting way.
