Here’s why you should care about this book: Firstly, this is the type of story where the cast knows about fantasy tropes, and talk about how real life compares to them. Secondly, its star, Annetta Severio is a far better female protagonist than Bella, Katniss and Tris, in that she has no time for her character arc derailed by romance when there’s a multiverse to save. There’s bigger fish to fry. Thirdly, there’s no “chosen ones,” and nothing comes easy to our heroes. This is a Sue-unfriendly zone. Lastly, this story has a heavy theme of strong platonic friendship between the sexes, something I rarely ever see any fiction talk about. Oh, and for what it’s worth, you’re supporting Canadian fiction by reading it.
