  • I heart this book, and the whole series it s part of is a critical and clever re telling of the usual tropes of fantasy writing from a decolonial Cherokee centered Indigenous perspective Justice creates an extremely rich and varied world of distinctive and memorable characters that i love The pacing is excellent, too good foreshadowing, nice mix of action and strong character development It s just great My one major quibble with the book is Justice s reliance on disability as a tragic narrative [...]


  • Ah I was finally in the mood to finish this gem this week It was a great read A nice change to the sci fi fantasy genre with its emphasis on colonization from the perspective of those being colonized I really like the description of the world this novel was set in, and following the main characters The only thing i found a little hard was following all the jumps back and forth from the characters I felt like i was just being able to relate to one and then it skipped to the next the result was th [...]


  • I made a terrible mistake everyone I had Kynship, the first book in the fantasy trilogy The Way of Thorn and Thunder by Daniel Heath Justice, sitting in the closet at my dad s house for like two years and I only read it a few weeks ago I had originally bought it for a course on gender, feminism, and Indigenous literature, but we ended up not covering it in the class, which is really too bad because I would have discovered this novel and Daniel Heath Justice so much earlier There s so much to lik [...]


  • Oh gawd, I don t know about this I m two pages in, and already we ve got the frightening threat of Man against the Everworld and warrior women who are twice as powerful during their Moon Time I m not sure if I m going to get through this It s like choking on treacle steeped in the mystical smell of the fir trees.


  • I can appreciate this book for its allegorical references to the Trail of Tears, but it s just not my thing, and the description is a bit laborious to get through
