The Impossible Contract is the second book in Doore’s Chronicles of Ghadid trilogy, a series following a family of assassins in a desert world where water is not only currency, but magic.

Edwards has done the impossible: Hanged Man is EVEN BETTER than Last Sun!

This deserves every bit of the hype it’s received. Despite the promise of f/f, this wasn’t actually a book I was originally especially excited about – I don’t usually have a lot of interest in dystopias, which was what this sounded like, and I guess the blurb struck me as sounding a little too…conventional YA?
