Finished reading: The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison 📚
This was such a tender and hopeful read. The journey of an emperor is so often a lonely one, but it doesn’t have to be devoid of love and affection. The way Maia finds his place at court makes you believe that people can be inherently good.
“But he did not forget, and told himself he would not forget, that it was possible for people to be kind without ulterior motive, that sometimes bargaining was not necessary.”
