    Spoiler free review “Weak or strong she didn’t know what they meant any Maybe they didn’t mean the same thing for everyone”First you have to know that this book literally is being marketed as and I uote a fantasy feminist fairy tale and if you think that wasn't enough to sell me on it you are DEAD WRONG
