  • I LOVE this book!

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this book! I love Rae, how stubborn and good she is. I love how all the relationships are treated, between Rae and friends, between Rae and family, between Rae and the people she gets to know. I love how the different kinds of violence are treated, how we get to see Alyrra handle the violence directed at her with the support of Kestrin, and how Rae begins to think about the verbal violence directed at her because of her disability and how she deals with the physical violence directed at her. I love that they all decide to do some self defense because everyone should learn self defense! I love how Rae's concern about one person begins to spiral out into a feeling of responsibility for her community and that she doesn't do this alone. She's not some lone crusader solving all the worlds problems by herself, she has a team, and support and allies, which is how change happens in the real world. I do not love the cliffhanger, but you won't see me taking any stars away from this excellent book because of it! I can't wait for the next book though! Before the connection to human trafficking became really clear, this book actually made me think about how it could be a metaphor for gun violence in the US. How people don't want to see it and deny it and the people who are affected by it have to live their lives with it always hanging over them and with nowhere to go to for help. I love seeing writers get better as they write more books (and I stop reading the ones who don't) and Intisar Khanani just keeps getting better! If you want a non-European setting and a heroine who is strong in many different ways and an integral part of many communities read this book!

  • Another fabulous read!

    I read Thorn, The Bone Knife, and Bramble last year and adored them, and have been waiting not-so-patiently for The Theft of Sunlight and it did not disappoint. I love Rae. She's everything I want in a MC - intelligent, caring, strong, determined, and protective. Bren is delightful. My favorite characters from Thorn are also highly featured. It's just a great group of characters all around. The story is complex and kept me hooked wanting to know what happened next. I also really enjoy Intisar's writing in general - it's part of what drew me in while reading Thorn and I'm so glad I discovered her books last year.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Great read

    this book is the second book in this series and was just as enjoyable as the first book, Thorn. The characters are well developed and the story pulls you in. finished the book in one sitting. Looking forward to when the next book gets released.

    Thanks for your feedback!
