Fearsome. Unwavering. Isaboe’s resolution and leadership are a thing to behold. She is her own boss. She loves with ferocity.
Quintana of The Lumatere Chronicles by Melina Marchetta | Review
“‘Do you know who tells me my worth, Phaedra of Alonso?’
The princess pointed a hard finger at her own chest.
‘Me. I determine my own worth. If I had to rely on others I’d have lain down and died waiting.’”
I love Hermione and Shazi so much! Both fiercely intelligent and brave. And Petey will hold a special place in my reading heart forever.
I’m so glad you love Petey too. She deserves more love!!!
