A summary of my review of Jade War: Fonda Lee, stop breaking my heart.
Wintersong and its conlusion Shadowsong are an interesting mix of retellings: The Erlkoning, Labyrinth, the Goblin Market and the tale of Hades and Persephone. I was wary of this duology and I had every right to be as it turned out, but I still enjoyed it to a point.
The Ingenious is an interesting fantasy set in a world with a ‘floating’ city. If that sounds whimsical, the book is not. It is dark and gritty, and it failed to capture me.
