Take the Pieces and Build Them Skywards: Gerard’s not happy with his life, but that doesn’t mean he’s particularly thrilled when he wakes up dead. To add insult to injury, he finds out that instead of crossing over, he’s been chosen to join the ranks of the grim reapers. Things get more complicated when he falls for one of the living, a waiter named Frank Iero. And just when everything finally seems to be falling into place, Frank’s name shows up on the list of souls to be reaped. Loosely based on the TV show Dead Like Me.

“Yes. In fact it is. His name is Remus Lupin.”

“Lupin? Like, Lupine? Do you think that’s a sign? I bet he’s an animal in the sack.”

“Oh. My. God! Pansy!” Both girls were silent for a beat. “I really hope so.” Hermione mused.

Pansy cackled over the line.

Okay but this drama is driving me crazy! I’ve been praying for a good, unpredictable drama with a fresh plot and good acting and I must have been a good girl cause God has answered my prayers! 

Just finished And I Darken by Kiersten White, a historical YA feat. a young Vlad the Impaler if-he-were-a-girl and goddaaaamn it’s ambitious. I love that the story came from imagining why Vlad was so brutal and how women have to be more of anything to prove themselves to the world, though it’s only half Lada Dragwlya’s story (the other PoV is her equally compelling brother Radu). It is ultimately a story about thrones and conquerors and the sacrifices made for power and self.

I love how casually the story defies expectation. I don’t think there’s any real “plot twist”–most events are actually pretty foreshadowed–but it just forgoes so many easy tropes/resolutions. It never proclaims any route the characters take as the right or wrong one. There is no singular solution, no deus ex machina talent, no true hero, no goal to root for. There are only characters trying to carve out a place in the world they can control, for ambition or just their safety. And for the main characters–Lada is brutal and Radu is gentle and so easily that can mean strength and weakness respectively, but it more often explores how her brutality hinders her and how cunning his gentleness can be. There are all kinds of power–power from fear, words, trust, your very own body–and all kinds of stakes. Gender, sexuality, and religion aren’t used carelessly to define people and it’s genuinely diverse.

It is dense, almost slice-of-life-ish woven with politics and it spans from childhood to adulthood, but it’s constantly moving and impressively researched. I wasn’t completely convinced by some of the romantic aspects or Mehmed’s character, but I can see these as one-time setup issues that smooth away in the next book, which promises to be very interesting, if history is any indication.
