Dragonfly Falling - Adrian Tchaikovsky

This translates to 206 pages if you take the total to be 688 like on the BL edition page or 216 if you take Kobo's 721. Either way, this gets me $6 for my booklikes-opoly bank for my Free Friday read that's been dragging for weeks because other books have taken priority. I'm not abandoning the book and I'm going to continue reading it tonight, but I doubt I'll get to another dollar threshold before midnight. It's good, but not enthralling.


Final booklikes-opoly bank total: $269


By the way, this book could be summarized as: everyone's going to war! And we haven't run out of new Kinden yet.
