What a ride!
The word to describe this book is definitely “rage”. The story is amazingly well done and portrayed so well that I could visualize what was going on almost as if I was watching an anime. I would certainly love to see Iron Widow turned into an animated movie, especially because the special effects would be able to bring the Chrysalises to life so well.
The story gripped me from the first page. I immediately liked all the characters, but especially Shimin. I gasped out loud several times and enjoyed how the writing was so unapologetic about the material it covered. I can’t wait to find out what happens next!
