Girls of Paper and Fire | Girls of Storm and Shadow


There’s one thing Lei knows – she can never return to the Hidden Palace. The trauma and tragedy she suffered behind those opulent walls will plague her forever. She cannot be trapped there with the sadistic king again, especially without Wren.

The last time Lei saw the girl she loved, Wren was fighting an army of soldiers in a furious battle to the death.

With the two girls torn apart and each in great peril, will they reunite at last, or have their destinies diverged forever?

The Girls of Paper and Fire trilogy is the empowering story of Lei and Wren. Who were taken as Paper Girls for the demon king but become the bane of his existence. If that doesn’t spell kick ass girls I don’t know what to tell you.

In this last installment our two girls have been separated, neither of them knowing if the other is still alive. Where in the previous two installments they gained a lot of strength from each other, now they are back on their own. And it causes a lot of self doubts. Especially for Wren who wonders if maybe she is a monster that doesn’t deserve Lei.

Lei on the other hand has to deal with what happened previously when she was in the hidden palace. The trauma that the demon king and its inhabitants caused her have left its marks. And while I would rather she didn’t have to relive some things I did think it was empowering to see for her as a character how much the Demon King feared the girl she had become. Because Lei kicks an insane amount of butt.

Another thing I was happy about was to see the other paper girls again. I’m glad that they weren’t forgotten about in this finale because they all played their part in the first book and it wouldn’t have been right to conclude this series without them.

More than that I don’t want to share because it wouldn’t be right to share too much of this conclusion. All in all this was a good conclusion to a strong empowering trilogy.
