My thoughts:So I don’t remember which of you recommended these books, but seriously, thank you! I don’t know why I took so long to pick them up. Well, yes I do. I don’t like robots/cyborg stories most of the time. They just don’t appeal to me, but these were amazing books! Amazing series! I loved every minute of reading these. It’s such an original take on fairy tale retellings and I love it. The world building was amazing, the character development was fantastic. There is romance but it’s not all that defines the characters. And the series is full of unique female protagonists who have different flaws and strengths and they’re just great. The pacing was non-stop, the plotting fantastic. I literally cannot say enough good things about this series. If you haven’t read it yet, check it out.
And then check out all the extras on the authors webpage. I read all the short stories she’s got available in one night and they were amazing. I know I’ve used that word way too much in the last two paragraphs, but I haven’t been THIS excited about a book find in a long, long time. I can’t wait for the next installment!
