I had a hard time finishing this book for multiple reasons. First, I don’t enjoy reading dystopian books and the subject matter of girls being forced to kill in a war is very difficult to read about.
The author shines a light on a part of history I had no idea about. I think for those like myself who are not familiar with the Nigerian Civil War, the story might be confusing when it comes to the two factions.
The writing was amazing as was the world building looking at the two factions and how different each one was.
I would not recommend this book for those that don’t enjoy dystopia. While I won this as a first impressions on Bookishfirst because I loved what I read, this may not be for everyone. I would call this a military science fiction dystopia.
I won this ARC for my first impressions review on Bookishfirst. Thank you to the publisher, Razorbill, Bookishfirst and the author for allowing me to read this.
