      She was so lovely! Ah you need to read it asap, I can’t get over the fact that it’s only a debut novel! It’s amazing ✨

    Wow it’s so inspiring how she worked on an unpublished novel for three years and still had the heart to write another one! And thank goodness she did too!

    After I finished the book, I thought that it would be a great book to create a film adaptation for. I shared my review on Tumblr and someone told me that COBAB’s hype actually came from there being a movie deal even before the book came out, as critics and filmmakers were excited about it. I haven’t double checked on how true that is though.

    The world-building was great. I loved the characters and thought they were nuanced. Even if I didn’t agree with their actions, I understood where they were coming from.

    Also… that cliffhanger! I thought the ending was a little ambiguous, in that delicious cliffhanger-like way, which I loved. But then I read the blurb for the second book and that kinda spoiled the intensity of the cliffhanger for me. idk if everything mentioned in the blurb was obvious from the last scene of the first book, but it wasn’t to me! What about you? Did you find the end of COBAB a little ambiguous? -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

      So glad you finally got around to reading it! I’ll need to check out review for it asap. Tomi shared on her Twitter recently how the film is expected for release in 2020 so hopefully it will be worth the wait. I heard that too!

      The world-building is what I adored most about the book and it’s what I’m most looking forward to returning to in its sequel. But I agree! I think I’ll have to go back and read the ending before the sequel, but I think overall, magic has returned to Orisha, but whether Inan is actually dead or not I have no idea!
