Steel Crow Saga Pdf or Kindle ePUB ☆ Paul Krueger
Ive of China Japan the Philippines and Korea Some are rogues and some are royals each with distinct voices and desires such some are royals each with distinct voices and desires such to avenge fallen family members who died in war or to secure the throne of their country These characters paths crisscross until they all unite against one common enemy who possesses the power to tear all of their worlds asunderI love how this book addresses dark and heavy topics while still feeling so compulsively readable which did remind me of what it felt like to watch Avatar The Last Airbender Krueger shows the effects of imperialism from the vantage points of both the colonizer and the colonized ranging from the privilege that comes with systemic power to the psychological trauma that accompanies seeing our loved ones slaughtered His characters though almost bounce off the page with their charismatic personalities and their witty funny dialogue and distinct characteristics Our four main characters Xiulan Lee Tala and Jimuro each have well written personal motivations as well as uniue perspectives which helps keep the stakes high and the plot moving After reading this book for only a little while I felt this sense of trust with Krueger that he knew these characters well that he cared about them and that he put forth every effort possible for us to connect with them as well which paid off such that I did tear up during the final fight scene in the novelThe only constructive critiue I have toward this book is that the development of Tala and Jimuro s relationship felt a bit rushed or forced Though I love how their last interaction in the novel allows for breathing room and time to heal which felt much authentic I think the uickness of their relationship forming when they first met especially given the extent to which they could or should have opposed one another took me out of the narrative a bit Overall highly recommended for those who want a Our Island Guide young adult fantasy with lots of LGBT representation including a ff couple a couple of bisexual characters though one could be pansexual I m not entirely sure and a trans major though not main character I hope this novel gets the attention that white ueer stories doep that s me being petty because it deserves it Thank ou to my bff Natasha for recommending Steel Crow Saga and Goodreads friends please send me any and all ueer POC books ou d recommend or want me to read and review I never wrote a full review here but I have recommended this book loudly and vocally for months I now want to just as loudly rescind my support of the author and of his book Believe victims always Thanks to Leigh Bardugo I am now strangely drawn to any book
