Grace and Fury by Tracy Banghart
Publisher : Little Brown Books
Published on July 31st 2018
Grace and Fury is a well developed story about two sisters on opposite sides of fate in a world where women are inferior to men. A world where women have zero rights and it’s illegal for them to learn to read and write.
What I loved about this book is that although it a Young Adult Fantasy, the story is believable. It was such a breath of fresh air to read something that has just enough realism to make you believe in the world Tracy Banghart created here. The sisters, Nomi and Serina, are crafted so elegantly that after the first couple of chapters I found myself scurrying to finish the book into the wee hours of morning. Sleep? Who needs sleep?
That said, the plot was a tad predictable and I was not much surprised in the end. However, this isn’t a thriller and I didn’t go into it expecting to have a wtf? reaction. I am so incredibly glad to have given this book a chance and I can not wait to get my hands on the second book. There will be a second book, right?! I encourage you to grab a copy and immerse yourself in a world of Italian court, a bit of feminist power and a brilliant cast of characters.
Netgalley and little brown books provided me a copy of Grace and Fury in exchange for my honest review.
