Oh Dionysus, this was a great novel. There were times where I kept pausing it to draw out the pleasure of the experience, or because the emotions got too intense for me. The world-building is as phenomenal as ever. The characters are rich and complicated. We really get to see Danny struggling with her character flaws and inner darkness. The Nemesis stuff I feel a little uneasy about, but I'll have to see how the author realizes that later down the road. Most of all, I'm glad that this novel got a proper epilogue compared to the abrupt stop of the first novel.
I'm a cisgender man, and maybe this isn't my place...but this author GETS IT. This author understands suffering, and trauma, and self-loathing, and in those ways I was really able to relate to Danny as a character. Honestly? This book helped me with my own issues a little.
Danny is the superhero we need even though we, as a civilization, haven't done enough good to deserve her. Fictional or not, she has already saved many real human lives.

I really liked the first book. which made how much I didn't like the sequel kind of jarring. Danny went from being this sympathetic and inspiring charecter to being kind of a bitch that I didn't mind not rooting for. I feel like the title should have been; How I almost became a psychopath mass murderer. or maybe ;How I almost became a super villan. I mean I understood the reasons but at the same time she had a great support system and everyone that "turned their back" was because she had changed her personality.
