Thank you to Adri @ Perpetual Pages for this extensive list of content warnings. I would have missed some if they didn’t have it all written.
Graphic descriptions of blood, gore, violence, rape, bodily mutilation, dismemberment and dead bodies; mentions of massacres, infanticide, human trafficking, and human experimentation; instances of colorism/racism, misogyny, substance abuse/addiction, use of mind-altering drugs, verbal/physical abuse. Additionally, some instances of unchallenged ableism.
I am so, so, SO glad that I got approached to be a tour host for Audiobookworm Promotions and this was the firs tour that I asked to take part in. Who knew that I would get to join my first pick?! That was extremely lucky, and I am so grateful for this opportunity. I miss audiobooks and I plan on listening to a lot more with this company. Thank you so much to Jess for this opportunity again, and I appreciate being able to be a part of this.
Oh buddy, I was not expecting to get accepted for this blog tour and I’m so glad I did. This was a pretty thicc book also, so I recommend taking your time with it more than I did. It’s also the first book, so keep that in mind as you read it. Thank you so much to the crew at RockStar Book Tour for hosting this and including me on this tour.
