Review: Owl and the Electric Samurai

Owl and the Electric Samurai (The Owl Series) - Kristi Charish

Serious love/hate relationship with this book. I adore Owl being so very much herself, but some of her decisions in this one make zero sense:


Like, she's being followed everywhere, but her master plan is to find the people everyone is looking for to "help" keep them from being found? Yeah, no way that could go wrong. And yet that's the fucking plan even after she keeps being surprised that people find her anywhere she goes?

(show spoiler)


The last act is better, though. I'm sold on the ending. I laughed my way through the last few chapters because I am a terrible person who wants bad things to happen purely for my own amusement. Bravo.
