The dead will rise.
I liked the novelty Bardugo brought to the table with this one, along with the untrustworthy characters and exploration of darker themes. The ending was great as well. I really want the second book now.
The first half was a little laggy though and things didn't pick up for me until we started to get a glimpse into what made Alex who she is today. I liked all the bits after.
I could rate this higher, as high as a 4, but I do not feel any inclination to do so.
