    This was a fast paced fun read. It was YA so it unfortunately it fell into some of the same YA pitfalls I tend to dislike, most notably, an instalove triangle. Not to fear though, the love interest doesn’t even show up until halfway into the book and the romance was in no way a central plot thread.I loved the characters here.

    I LOVED THIS BOOK. Post-apocalyptic magical knife-wielding female assassins FTW!
