We Rule The Night by Claire Eliza Bartlett

A Different Kind of Magic but Confusing
A War Between Nations
Girl Power

With Audio Performed by Chloe Cannon

๏ ๏ ๏  My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏ 

This will appeal to many out there who are tired of the special snowflakes in fantasy novels but still crave strong female characters and the ones who don't care for any romance or info-dumping.  This is a character-driven steampunk fantasy that centers on female relationships and the trials of war with an interesting but confusing magic system.

But beware...because sadly, for me, I just didn't get this world that the Author created.  I had no clue what was going on half the time and the rest, I just didn't care.  This nation that they are going to war for didn't feel like a nation worth fighting for...I mean if you're considered a traitor after surviving a day and a half in enemy territory...then seriously, WTF?  This had the potential to be so much more than it was because what I did glean of this world felt super-cool.  But overall, it just felt super-unrealized. 

The Narration was decently done, but of course, I would've liked a second narrator for each of the two female narrators.  She did give a little distinction between Linné and Revna's voices, though.
