Review: Infidel

Infidel - Kameron Hurley

Wonderful, powerful, fantastic sequel to God's War. Everything I loved about the first one plus some welcome character reveals and development for a secondary character.

 

Basically Nyx is my Patronus, and years after the misadventures of the first book, she still hasn't figured out how to die. No matter how hard she gets knocked down, she gets back up and keeps moving forward - and in this book, she gets knocked the fuck down. 

 

Inaya, who's role in God's War includes some mystery and a lot of frustration shines amazingly in Infidel. 

 

Basically, this book is full of blood and death and awesome women. 

 

You know. Comfort food.
