I’m currently reading Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas and I am actually so pleasantly surprised. I’ve had a bit of a love-hate relationship with Maas’s books recently so, naturally, I was really nervous for this one. I was quite worried about how Maas would handle Chaol’s disability. Whilst I can’t speak for the disability representation personally, I’ll link a few reviews from wheelchair users (Her Bookish Things and A Page With A View and Emily) that seem to be pleased with the representation. Which makes me so happy because I am loving the focus on character development and world-building. This book is making me remember why I fell in love with this series in the first place and I feel so happy to have this story told.
“He and Nesryn had never been good at talking. They’d tried, usually with disastrous results. They’d done everything out of order, and he’d cursed himself again and again for not making it right with her. Not trying to be better.”
