I’m solidly mediocre! Not great, not terrible. Just serviceable. Could be worse, I guess.

“I loved the book, but I love mythology in general. I would maybe use more generic terms for a reader that doesn’t understand mythology as I do.”
“This book was very difficult to read the pace was all over the place. It would go from several pages for the same day to one paragraph to advance several years. Half the time I had no idea who was speaking because the quotation marks were not consistent. Also I feel it should be separated into chapters instead of “parts”, being arranged into parts made it difficult to find
a stopping point.”
“I really enjoyed the premise of the book. Also good for LGBTQ+ teens. An interesting take on Madousa that is humanizing and entertainment.”
