Magic born or magic earned? Well how about both?
First things first, I absolutely loved this book. I was hooked from page one and was hard pressed to put it down. It's fast paced and full of twists and turns.
The story is set in the near future in Canada, with tons of diversity. I loved the blend of science fiction and fantasy. Robots and magic! There is a huge emphasis on family and how a big loving family, doesn't equal to a big happy functioning family. Every family has fissures and cracks, but ultimately family can be there for you.
There are tons of different cultural food mentioned that will make your mouth drool so warning, don't read on an empty stomach. You will get hungry. However, do not mistake all the food mentioning that this is a light happy read. There is plenty of bloody imagery through-out the book.
Voya is a very lovable and frustrating protagonist that you never know if you want to hug or smack up side the head. I saw myself in many parts of her, so even in the frustrating parts, I still wanted to hug her.
I highly recommend this book and cannot wait for the next book to be released!
Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for the e-arc to read and review.
