I really enjoyed this book! I loved that 23 was either, she, he, or they depending on how 23 was dressed. I also found this book moved at a good pace with lots of plotting and action! A great fantasy read!

Mask of Shadows is the first in a series that is great for any fantasy lovers. Living in a post-magical world, the characters in this book must make due with arrows, daggers, and shields to do their dirty work. While it hit all my personal sweet-spots for the traditional assassin competition plot line, this novel’s main character, Sal, was the most intriguing part. Sal is a gender fluid thief who enters the competition for a chance at revenge. Having a gender fluid character in a fantasy setting is a very welcome change to the traditional narrative and allows for greater diversity within the rest of the book. Highly recommended for those looking for more LGBT representation within the sci-fi/fantasy genre and in YA at large.

If you are a fan of Leigh Bardugo and Sarah J. Maas, then Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller would be a great book for you! I love that the main character is gender fluid and the fact that this book is about becoming one of the Queen's personal assassins. This is a great start to a new fantasy series.
