Cependant je progresse, je deviens plus forte. May 02, Ash Wednesday rated it did not like it Shelves: Any world-building or description of the outside world was told in the beginning and left there, never to be duald up again.

However, it is these same qualities that will cause a faction of readers to push away from Dualed. The Lost Sun by Tessa Gratton.

I just didn’t think Chapman did a good job showing us her feelings and letting us sympathize with her. In fact, they don’t even show up!

Also available as an audiobook and ebook. It was great to have a character who knew when to leave well enough alone.

Every single moment, from when she entered the secret world of assassins, or strikers, to receiving her assignment and seeing her own other self for the first time – you can see it. If you haven’t already, add this book to your to-be-read ASAP pile.
