Queen of the Conquered


I didn't care for this book. Only 360 pages and it took me two weeks to get through. Almost the whole book was exposition. The main character could enter people's minds and practically become them, in effect, getting their back stories. She then proceeded to recount those back stories to us. There was very little action, even though the book is about colonialism, revolt, and revenge. I picked the book up every day and had to force myself to stay awake despite the tedium of the back stories. This book won the 2020 World Fantasy Award.
