Whether it's from one battle to the next, the conquering of a territory, or the heart-wrenching betrayal, Parker-Chan never lets up on the throttle. Even though first he’ll have to get over some major trust issues he has probably developed from Ma 😅 But I am choosing to believe he has a happy life or else I will loose sleep over it. Madam Zhang is so disconnected from the pain of her body that she becomes unfeeling, she controls her body as you would a clockwork toy and winds herself up again for her next performance.

If Madam Zhang had known the true extent of Zhu’s physical lacks—which, as far as matters of masculine anatomy went, included more than broad shoulders or a right hand—no doubt she’d have considered even Zhu’s present accomplishments to have been impossible. I was captivated by their tragic arcs, their Machiavellian schemes, and their supremely twisted relationships with one another. Ma being her caring self and reaching through to Baoxiang’s darkness because all he ever wanted was someone to be kind and loving towards him but once it actually started happening it was too late 😭😭😭 But I hope that glimpse of a happy future was enough to change him for the better and bring back that forgotten caring part of himself. chan is actually pretty great at action scenes and i'm gonna need more of that from their future work. For 80% of the book, I was certain I would give this five stars, however, two moments towards the end left me feeling conflicted.Baoxiang is only one part of a very detailed and nuanced discussion of gender and queerness throughout these books, but a new layer that I thought was added in this story was the layer of perception.

What respect does he lack from the world around him, for his manner, his appearance, his accomplishments? But we encounter his POV at the point where he has been drowned by his grief and pain so you can never truly root for him even as your heart breaks. There was a scene where they were asked to choose between someone dear to them and winning, but in the end the choice was made for them-almost in a copy and paste version of another scene in book one.

I don’t know how well done the other characters were but, I can assure you, this one was a masterpiece. Overall, it’s a graphic and genuine portrayal of how effortlessly a person can allow grief to overpower and crush to gratify one’s pain for some level of pleasure and contentedness.
