Velvet Door Society instantly grabbed me because our main female protagonist, Willow, is so relatable to anyone who calls them-self a "nerd" or "fangirl/boy," much like I do. Willow, Evander, and Zan are beautifully written characters in a uniquely crafted world, in which, the principal story is one of finding yourself, with the help of friends, and overcoming difficulties you would never expect.
I suppose one little thing about VDS which, honestly, wasn't even that big of a deal for me is that I predicted the "who-dun-it" and the character reveal of someone who turned out to be quite important. THAT SAID, there's something about the switching viewpoints that made it okay for me and kept me invested and interested to continue reading. You really click with Willow, Evander, and Zan and want to see how their story ends.
A great first book release for a dip into the YA fantasy world!
