Good, not great (for me)

The Brilliant Death was a nice read, but not one that I see myself revisiting in the future. I enjoyed the vivid prose and the somewhat playful approach to gender. The magic was cool. The plot sort of wandered though and I never felt fully connected to any of the many characters. In particular, I would have liked a better understanding of Teo; it was weird spending an entire book in her head and yet not really caring what did or didn’t happen to her.

Amy Rose Capetta is a capable author, and one I plan to continue to follow on social media/in the literary world, both with and separate from her partner Cori McCarthy. As far as I’m concerned there can never be enough queer representation out there.
