Of Fire and Stars was one of my favorite books of 2017, so naturally I was ELATED to find out there was a prequel story. While I did enjoy Inkmistress, it just didn't have the excitement I felt while reading the first installment of this series. That being said, I am still very happy I picked up this story.
As a note, I listened to the audiobook of this story and did not enjoy the narration very much. For some reason, I cannot stand British audiobook narrators that sound significantly older than ...more

Despite what a certain review implies, there is nothing wrong with a bisexual female having a relationship with a man. This does not "undermine" her sexuality or make previous relationships any less valid.
... there IS something wrong with info-dumps though. Lots and lots of boring info-dumps that made it really hard to push through this story?
Full RTC soon, probably, maybe.
I didn't know this was a prequel when I requested it?? But I'm here for bisexuals and blood magic

Let’s cut to the chase, this book explores something I have NEVER seen in YA. I am talking about a character that is attracted to both female and males. Bisexuality is nowhere in YA and I am so happy with the way the author portrayed in this book. I mean, yes there was action and a pretty good story to follow, but more importantly the character doesn’t offer apologies or explanations for the way that she is. Asra is bisexual and it doe ...more
