I love this book. I love the strong female characters, the all too familiar struggle between status quo and progress, and the glimmer of hope that things can change when we all find a way to put aside our fears and bias.
I will keep this book in my library. It is truly a keeper. Now I am on to book 2!!! 5 STARS!!!!

I listened to this book on Audible and it was so great. The summery compares it to Cassandra Clares City of bones and Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. I have not read the latter but I can tell you as much as I absolutely love City of Bones this was nothing like it. It was so completely different and original I am not sure what to compare it to.
There are ancient races of people living under the city of NYC. These people have feathers and magic and though hidden are very strong people. Echo is not physically one of them but she is living with them. Echo is a strong yet vulnerable young woman. She is pulled into an adventure that she never saw coming. Which is saying something considering she lives in a library and knows an ancient race of people.
This book is full of adventure and excitement. There is a prophecy no one actually believes but still pops up anyway like those pesky prophecies do. This is what sends Echo on her quest and adventure. This book hooked me and sent me right to book 2 when this one ended.
If you choose to listen as I did you will also enjoy the narrator. Where this can often affect the book in negative ways this is not the case. She has an amazing way of distinguishing the characters from one or the other.
