Yet another fantasy world created within the mind of Mary Fan, & what a fantasy world it is! The Edge of Evil progresses mostly at a steady pace, but as you delve further into the world, & the book, the stakes gradually increase & by the end I was completely hooked. If you’ve not dived into one of Mary’s books yet, you absolutely must – she’s one of the best writers in YA fantasy right now (& my favourite author).
⚠️ This book contains a death of a parent, violence, discrimination, as well as gun & bomb use ⚠️
Raybearer is the start of a debut series by a strong & enchanting voice; Jordan Ifueko has created magic within these pages & has produced a book that I found completely impossible to put down. Publishers need to be supporting more authors of colour like Jordan, because books like this absolutely raise the bar in YA fantasy.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for an honest review.
⚠️ Violence, emotional/psychological child abuse, physical abuse, manipulation & exploitation, sexual references, memories of domestic violence, fire, deaths of parents, child sacrifices, child abandonment & murder ⚠️
