A Theonite War Story by M.L. Wang

“It was a harrowing climb to the high school. Eight hundred twenty-one steps.”
To be honest, I delayed writing this review. I realize now what the issue was. The issue that I have been ignoring or dreading. The issue is the emotional trauma I felt after reading this book. Before I picked up the book, when I read others reviews there were several that mentioned that there are 2 climaxes in the book. But these climaxes are not both at the end. One occurs about 1/2 way in and the other occurs at 70-80% in. When I initially heard about the 2 climaxes I was like “Awesome. More greatness!” That, of course, was before I experienced the first climax first-hand. Before I experienced the emotional trauma. At that point, I put down the book down for a longer period than I thought I would and I wasn’t even sure I would ever pick it up again.
