What We Devour by Linsey Miller

Linsey Miller is a very special author who produces books that can never be described as generic YA fantasy. This book had so much going for it: incredible worldbuilding, unforced yet passionate diversity, a ruthless yet moral lead character, disability rep, a gender-fluid character whose pronouns kept changing with no explanation (which I found really […]
