The Kirkus Review for Scribbles of the Empress was released. It was very positive. I need to read it against the previous two reviews, but instinctively, this feels like the best review of the three. The tagline they gave it was, “A sensational conclusion to a dark, captivating series.”
I’m very happy that the reviewer spoke of it so favorably. While waiting for the review to come out, I had been worrying it would come back saying something like:
- “The protagonist’s wallowing in misery was tiresome.”
- “The book was a letdown as the epic battle the story built up to never materialized.”
- “The author was far too indulgent with spilling Orly’s feelings all over the place.”
The reviewer recommended getting it, as was the recommendation for the previous two books, so that feels pretty great. If you’re interested, you can read the review here.
