Abigail Rook is not only a detective assistant, but she is witty and clever. While Jackaby has his Sight to help him solve cases, she does it merely with her human eyes, and considering how new she is to his profession? It is damn admirable.
It is a laugh out loud comedy, with an adorable arranged marriage romance, some revamping of history, and cute animals! Honestly, it indulged me in every way – it is delightful, the humor is actually funny, the plot is awesome, and I loved the occasional fourth wall breaks.
Declan Lynch may be one of the most complicated characters in The Raven King! I mean, he comes off as an asshole older brother at first glance, and then you are kinda like ‘with a brother like Ronan who can blame him’, but then you are also like ‘with a family like the Lynches that childhood was ROUGH’. I don’t entirely sympathize with him, but I love his complexity.
Absolutely confusing, absolutely mind-bending! (And I mean that in a good way)
Age difference romances are not something I like, nor ones where there is a power gap, but Maria V Snyder made it work in this series.
There’s racial diversity, neurodiversity, queer rep, and so much more in A Muse of Fire
