I would have loved to read this book when I was coming out as a teen, but I appreciate the place it holds in the world even more now that I'm an older reader. There's magic, kingdoms, gender-fluidity, and a strong plot-driven storyline. The (queer) romance captures the immediate intensity of a first love and will take you back to your first relationship -- or you'll fall in love with the love interest. I usually have a hard time with fantasty *cheesiness,* but this one really sucked me in when the plot got going. Don't pass this up just because you think you're too old for a teen book. (You're not!)

Action-packed and full of intrigue, The Brilliant Death by Amy Rose Capetta is an Italian-inspired fantasy that blends magic and politics along and adds in some gender fluid characters.
