A History of Glitter and Blood by Hannah Moskowitz is a story of fairies and the world where almost every faerie has been mutilated. Here is the official Goodreads blurb on the book:
“Sixteen-year-old Beckan and her friends are the only fairies brave enough to stay in Ferrum when war breaks out. Now there is tension between the immortal fairies, the subterranean gnomes, and the mysterious tightropers who arrived to liberate the fairies.
But when Beckan’s clan is forced to venture into the gnome underworld to survive, they find themselves tentatively forming unlikely friendships and making sacrifices they couldn’t have imagined. As danger mounts, Beckan finds herself caught between her loyalty to her friends, her desire for peace, and a love she never expected.
This stunning, lyrical fantasy is a powerful exploration of what makes a family, what justifies a war, and what it means to truly love.”
I will say that I TRIED to read this. I got a decent amount of the way through and still felt like I was confused. I felt like the writing was all of the place for me, and it was very hard to stay focused on what I was reading. There were too many names being thrown out there which didn’t help me. I couldn’t remember the parts that I read, so I decided to put this on my Did-Not-Finish (DNF) list. I honestly do not know if I will get back to reading this book., but for now its going to be checked off on my TBR list.
