Grave Mercy, by Robin LaFevers

Today at Kirkus, I wrote about Robin LaFevers' Grave Mercy, which reduced me to using the term 'whiz-bang', and which you need to add to your TBR list RIGHT NOW:

You are a Megan Whalen Turner fangirl. Yeah, that’s right. I brought out the big guns. Like the Queen’s Thief series, Grave Mercy features a young female ruler whose land is coveted by her more powerful neighbors, a whole lot of political intrigue, and the gods take an active role. Like Turner, LaFevers clearly has a respect for her audience: she drops us into Ismae’s world and lets us figure it all out on our own.

RIGHT NOW.
