the midnight girls review

the midnight girls is everything i could’ve asked for in a sapphic ya fantasy book. we have enemies to lovers, monster girls, and morally grey characters. not to mention, it was a fast, easy read.

the midnight girls follows zosia and marynka, two rivals who compete to be the best at every chance they get. i love how neither of them are “good”, and it doesn’t change much over the course of the novel (which i like, because so many become good over the course of the book, which ruins the morally grey thing). 

our side characters are just as entertaining as the main cast, and offer more queer relationships. there’s a good mix of good, bad, and everything in between.

i really enjoyed the setting of the midnight girls, as it’s not every day that you read a book set in a fantasy poland. i’m unsure how accurate some of the cultural traditions and superstitions are, but it still made for an entertaining read. 

overall, this is one hell of a good book. idk how else to round off this review, but if you want more queer characters in your fantasy books, then i 10000% recommend this one.
