We are over at Kirkus today with Ana’s look at Elizabeth Bear’s new novel Ancestral Night
In many ways this book is an excellent pairing with MCU’s recently released Captain Marvel. No, really, hear me out. Both are stories centring women being told what or not to do, told that their emotions are crap and that they should know better, that their choices of how to deal with their emotions are wrong. It is about empowerment, going against what anybody else thinks and finding your own way by embracing your identity, flaws and all. Also fighting against baddies and finding a home where your heart is.
Watch the movie, read this book, is what I am saying. Go over to Kirkus for the full review.
