I had discovered a special way that women could be dangerous They were trained to play close attention to people To take them apart like Luca had done with his clockworks and study how they ran 3 12 stars This was so freaking interesting A story following a genderueer narrator who can turn people into boxes and her love interest who can literally magically switch sexes all set in a 19th century Italian inspired world by an Italian American author Like come on how can I even resist that The Brilliant Death follows Teo who after her father is murdered is forced to journey to the capital of her state to attempt to save his life Along the way a form changing witch joins her She also turns several terrible men into inanimate objects which is something I am always here for Fundamental to this book is a discussion of denial of identity Lead character Teodora has both denied her identity as a witch and denied her complicated relationship with her gender I absolutely loved the coherency with which her arc around discovering herself tied together her character journey is one of my favorite aspects of this book And with this the book becomes a journey about hiding places and the way we can hide love and hide ueerness in plain sight There’s a clear avoidance of the inevitable outing which I almost expected throughout the book and I was incredibly impressed by how well Capetta handled this There is also a romance and it is fairly shockingly good Cielo the love interest is a bit of the Rogue Hero trope in the best way They sometimes appear as a boy and sometimes as a girl but are never uite either Sort of related the book’s utter refusal of gender is too powerful This is #ownvoices for both nonbinary characters and it is just so excellent Unfortunately there are also some cliche moments A death I didn’t like Some villain monologuing Plot is often forgotten for the admittedly very good romance Though the villains do have shades of well intentioned extremist they aren’t very memorable sisters Azzura and Delfina are the only exceptions I could have had of Teo’s love for her family And I did not vibe with some of the writing It's mostly really good and then sometimes sentences just feel weird I have to be honest though and say that my #1 favorite moment of this book was when Amy Rose Capetta called her partner Cori “my very own sexy magic tutor” in the acknowledgments I personally love romance ✨ Arc received via my local bookstore for an honest review releases 8 October 2018Blog | Goodreads | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube
