Here be Dragons

The Barney for best all-the-things-I-hate goes to…

Thorn by Intisar Khanani

So this is YA, it’s a romance, it’s about a princess who doesn’t quite fit in, it’s a fairy tale, it’s written in first person present tense and it features a talking horse… it only lacked zombies to hit all my not-for-me buttons. And guess what, it turned out to be one of my most enjoyable reads of the year. Some great characters, who behave believably and a brilliantly unexpected and intelligent ending, and it addresses some profound questions, too. If all YA fantasy is like this, I need to read more of it.
