Broken Moon

Broken Moon - Kim Antieau Broken Moon is a quick read, but a good one. Nadira is a strong, noble and humble young woman who I was happy to follow as her story progressed. She is heavily influenced by the story of Sheherazade, and in turn uses elements of that story as a way to save herself. I learned so much about everyday Pakistani culture and living through this read, some of which made me angry. The attack she is put through is considered 'justice' according to the law. I cannot imagine using an innocent in such a way. Fortunately, Nadira isn't one to let that stop her.
Her quick-witted thinking and fear is realistic. I only wish the happy ending could be, too.
