I read the following Young Adult novel within less than two weeks; the last 176 pages in one morning! I was so enthralled by the story that I rushed to Goodreads to post my review. I will write a more in-depth review soon, but for now here’s the one I just posted to Goodreads.
The Kingdom of Back by Marie Lu
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Like a composition of soaring melodies and grounding harmonies, Marie Lu’s THE KINGDOM OF BACK is a novel I’ll never forget!
I borrowed this novel from my local library and knew within the first twenty pages that I’ll end up buying a copy to read again and again. Marie Lu’s exceptional skill crafts chapters you can’t wait to start, paragraphs that keep you reading on, and lines that resonate long after you turn the page.
This memorable read blends that which I adore: magic (real and faery-like), historical fiction, and a heroine’s journey that you don’t just understand but feel in the deepest parts of the soul.
Thank you, Marie, for taking us on “Nannerl’s” journey and inspiring generations to come!
