5.0

It literally is Percy Jackson meets Hunger Games with a little bit of Red Queen squeezed in.

This is not a bad thing. AT ALL. Usually, I find works like these to be derivative, but this was amazing!

The characters were all almost immediately near and dear to my heart. I have to admit that the ending
Spoiler the him being Sunbearer and the not being able to stab the other person, not the other thing that happened
was rather predictable. BUT THE OTHER THING now that was interesting and totally caught me off guard.

I loved that this book was just nice and soft (ONLY IN SOME WAYS JESUS NOT IN ALL). If you read my reviews, you know I've been looking for a book about this for a while. I loved that the character is trans and that this book does not have transphobia. It's tiring trying to read to escape only to find more prejudice or reminders in books. bUT THE WING BIT IN THE FIRST TRIAL HAD ME IN TEARS. BECAUSE YES DEAR GOD TEARS.

Read it. Don't Question Me.
