I fully intended to wait until I at least finished Falling Kingdoms before buying the last book, because on the chance that I don’t enjoy it, it’ll feel a little less ridiculous if I don’t own the whole series. Then Barnes & Noble had a sale and how much more embarrassing can it really feel to have one more book? I basically already have them all.
I added American Panda to the cart because of its Asian rep, which focuses on Taiwanese culture in particular. A Forest of a Thousand Lanterns is one of the titles that comes up when I search for unforgiving protagonists, characters as ruthless as Lada from And I Darken. I find that they usually make for some incredibly satisfying stories.
