something about the way HE Edgmon writes Wyatt in particular that really hits deep for me.
While Wyatt's experiences are so unique to them, being a witch in a world where witches are persecuted, dealing with fated relationship, fae uprisings, learning to control a power that they don't necessarily understand... there is also something keenly universal about Wyatt being an outcast, being unsure of their own emotions, and struggling to find and keep good relationships.
This story comes on the heels of the Witch King and the story doesn't let up as Wyatt and Emyr struggle to keep their tenuous hold. What I love here is that these are young adults forced into a position of power without a lot of time to adjust. They are making decisions as they go and sometimes those decisions are awful. Sometimes they lash out and treat people they love poorly. Sometimes they trust the wrong people or jump too quick. These are not perfect heroes coming in to save the day. In fact sometimes they are a complete disaster, and that's okay, because most teens are a complete disaster, and they are still able to do amazing things. HE Edgmon captures that perfectly.
