This was a really entertaining read. It was easy to imagine a place like the city existing and operating as it did in the story. The plot was really well thought out and the characters were really strong.

I enjoyed being surprised by the killer as well as the full ending of the book. I appreciated how the author was able to slowly make you care about each character.

The cats were particularly amusing. Definitely a solid read and an author I will keep my eye on.

A fun fantasy mystery with themes of coming-of-age, independence and gender politics. The fantasy and “talking to cats” elements strongly reminded me of Tamora Pierce’s fantasy series, though the Bhinian Empire has a much stronger Asian influence (which has been steadily trickling into YA fiction recently). The story focused on Nisha’s solitary journey but was rather simple as a consequence. However, there is great potential in this fantasy world that has yet to be explored and additional characters to develop. Hopefully the next in the series will as good or better.

so good! can't wait for a sequel!!!
