Brief reviewI m biased as I generally
Gravitate Towards Male Protagonists But I Definitelytowards male protagonists but I definitely this novel I never realized I hadn t read this book et until I met the author Rukis who is delightful in person at a recent convention The characters their backstories development over the course of the story interactions with each other etc are the star of Rukis s writing The author wields her first person perspective
