read this a few years ago. was pretty surprised by how it pulled me into the story so fast. a very quick read! as much as i liked it, it is a bit of a downer so not for everyone. i have compared it to the movie Testament for a few people, too completely different subjects tho.

anyway, Maaza Mengiste has a new book: The Shadow King

i just got a copy. looking forward to reading it soon
