I'm really ecstatic to be on the tour for Sulan. Find my review about halfway down!
Episode One: The League ~ Sulan by Camille Picott

It's lovely to see diversity among characters, even if they are slightly stereotyped. But we have an Asian American protagonist, along with a few other friends who come from all different backgrounds. Also, it's cool to see how they all work together so flawlessly. Everyone seems to complete someone, and not even in a romantic way. Just in their friendships. I think that is amazing.
I loved the entire plot. From the start, when Sulan is at home, to the very end, when Sulan is with her dad (no spoilers here), there is action and important stuff; no fluff. Everything that has been said was said for a reason. Thanks for that. And dealing with the plot, it is definitely well-planned. I love seeing the characters thrown into so many different things and so confused throughout so much of the story (the characters, not the reader). I LOVE the plot twists! Do you know how many there are? So many. So many excellent twists that seriously throw you.
The research done is incredible. I learned so much about weapons and physics and bunches of other stuff that I never knew. Now who needs school?
I like how the ending wasn't a crazy cliffhanger that made you want to challenge the author to a duel. It was definitely an ending that makes me have to read the next book, but not in a ugh-I'm-forced-to-buy-the-next-book sort of way. Just a simple, wow that ended crazily. Have to read on. I like books that make me do that.
I really really enjoyed this book and I think I'll have to find myself a physical copy of this book to put on my shelf. It was that good. I absolutely adored this book and I hope my review reflects that though I am exhausted and probably rather incomprehensible. Just know, this is phenomenal. This book was astounding and I'm so glad I joined the tour.
