I don't read novels with women or girls as the main protagonist.

I could not put these down. Absolutely loved them! Great character development, good mythology, and I just want MORE! Check out her Broken Earth trilogy too - excellent story teller.

Awful world and cringeworthy romance, the sex scene made me laugh but not in a good way, “whales with the faces of friends long gone” erm if I saw that during sex it would NOT be and aphrodisiac. Embarrassingly awkward attempt at a novel.
