Lyons consistently takes risks in this series that pay off big. It is clear to me the author did not set out to write something standard. Lyons is making her own rules and carving out her own space the fantasy genre. Case in point: The House of Always is epic fantasy meets escape room thriller with a touch of horror, which is a combination I never would have dreamed up. But, not only am I here for it, I crave it. Jenn Lyons is an absolute genius, and I eagerly await the finale (2022 cannot come soon enough); in the meantime, this series gets a strong recommendation from me. You have nine months to catch up.
