    Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || || PinterestDNF p130I originally wasn't going to rate this book since it was a debut and I didn't particularly care for the writing style but people keep coming onto this review and leaving me rude comments saying that apparently you aren't allowed to write non rated reviews for books you haven't read so while I wait for my copy to renew again from the library and since I did read almost a uarter of it I will post my rated review with my thoughts so far and will update if they change once I try to read it again and give it a second shot A SONG OF WRAITHS AND RUIN is the first in a fantasy duology with Black characters in a world inspired by West African folklore Our hero and heroine are Malik and Karina Karina is a princess whose mother has just been assassinated and whose court is in the midst of political upheaval Malik is poor and part of a discriminated against cultural minority and he and his sisters end up in a Jareth from Labyrinth type situation with one of the gods when his younger sister accidentally makes a bargain and the only way to save her is to you guessed it assassinate the princess KarinaThere isn't anything objectively wrong with this book but I had a lot of trouble getting into it and when I stalled at page 130 I ended up returning it to the library for the next person I was told that this was inspired by Aladdin and I can sort of see that; Malik is soft in a good way and cares for his sisters and he wants freedom from the life that consistently beats him and his family down Likewise Karina is a princess who feels like she's in a gilded cage and longs for freedom from her own different brand of oppression Plus they're enemies to lovers and there's a gladiatorial element too I loved the premise and I even liked what the author was trying to do with the characters It just has the same sort of bland plodding story telling that countless other young adult fantasy books of this type has which is made evident by its BLANK OF BLANK AND BLANK formatted title Far too many YA fantasy novels have this bland inoffensive mode of story telling and not inoffensive in wow there's nothing un PC in this book I am so angry but inoffensive as in the book doesn't really take a lot of risks and plays everything very safe by sticking to a formula that feels very linear and predictable I've had similar complaints about Sarah J Maas's and Renee Ahdieh's work and while I did enjoy Roseanne A Brown's better than theirs it still felt tedious to get through It's worth pointing out that I'm not a teen and I am not Black and I feel like a lot of teens and especially Black teens will enjoy this book because seeing yourself reflected in the narrative is a privilege that not all of us can enjoy I just really couldn't get into it and I'm going to try again and if I feel like it improves upon a second read I will adjust my rating and post an update to my review reflecting that2 stars

    from a cultural standpoint this book is fantastic the diversity and representation especially the anxiety rep is what gives this story its power theres so much magic and heart and imagery it reminded me very much of ‘children of blood and bone’ and although im not as obsessed with the plot full of YA clichés and characters karina is soooo annoying as everyone else seems to be i still found this to be a pretty good story i thought malik was a high point his humble nature is uite sweet to read about i also enjoyed the ending i think it concludes naturally and sets the story up well for the next book overall this is a very lovely debut ↠ 35 stars

    Honestly one of the best fantasies I’ve read in a while Lush elaborate worldbuilding genuine emotional stakes beautiful imagery engaging writing and best of all the story COMMITTED to itself The grief the familial relationships the depiction of anxiety as an actual debilitating illness this book showed up and actually delivered on its promises Not only that but it treats its villains with compassion and does not rest on the trite cliché of “good vs evil” A uniue compelling exciting read that truly shows what YA fantasy can accomplish Also Dedele exudes the most exuisite lesbian warrior energy and I love her thanks bye
