Read this book for complex characters journeying together in a coming-of-age story, wherein Teo and Cielo both wrestle with their concepts of identity, duty to family, and a no-good, sleazy bad guy.

The action builds quickly and beautifully, although I got a little lost in the middle when the plot-action spiked and I was grasping for a tad more world-building.

The Brilliant Death reads great as a standalone novel - I was totally satisfied with the ending - but now that we know there's a sequel, I'm looking forward to more exploration of the world at large and how Teo and Cielo build relationships with supporting characters.
