I was so excited for this book – morally gray sapphic women! But I had to stop.
TRIGGER WARNING: TRYPOPHOBIA!!
The early chapters of this book feature very heavily a disease called “the Rot” that is basically… plants growing out of people’s skin. This is a major trypophobia trigger for me which makes me physically ill and I wanted to warn anyone else who might want to steer clear. I couldn’t find any mention of it in the reviews nor any trigger warnings for the book.
I don’t know if it will continue but my hunch is that it will, since there is so much focus on how mysterious this disease is at the beginning.
I will say that the writing was beautiful and the characters already interesting and if I was able to continue I would.
