    Brilliant Read

    The Brilliant Death by Amy Rose Capetta has to be one of my favorite reads of the year. I loved how she created a powerful individual through Teodora DiSangro and her unique personality really strikes a chord with readers. Capetta referenced her Italian-inspired influences into a highly colorful narrative which blended into the story so seamlessly. I also wanted to commend Capetta for creating Cielo. Capetta found a very natural way to be inclusive of a gender fluid individual and, even more so, took on a powerful stance on gender definitions. It's refreshing when authors break gender barriers by equipping themselves with the great faculty of storytelling. Altogether I found this is a book that takes fantasy to a higher level.

    Simply amazing!

    The premise of the story was really cool and I felt that the story really delivered what it promised to (political intrigue, mafia, magic, queer representation). The prose was rich and detailed. I enjoyed the Italy-inspired setting and how unique Teodora's talents (storytelling, secretly transforming her enemies into decorative objects, etc.) were. Stregas can do so many cool things! Also Cielo? I really loved him and his romance with Teo. I liked that they were both gender fluid due to their ability to transform their bodies. The plot was engaging from beginning to end. I am really hoping that there's a sequel! The cover is really great! It's bright and catches the eye. It also matches the story rather well.
