On the surface, the conflict simmers around the male MC. But the shit trailing this not-so-ordinary girl makes his problems laughable. This is my second Elsborg novel and won't be my last. She's a master at crafting page-turning tension, scenes weeping with emotion, unexpected plots, and unforgettable characters. And because I prefer darker stories, the background of the not-so-ordinary girl in this tale had me fixated till the end. Still, Elsborg softened this tragedy with humor, a brilliant skill, especially for this genre.
