This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
Unfortunately, I don’t think Sarah Gailey is for me. I don’t know if it’s because her books are mostly novellas or what, but I can’t connect with her characters. This audiobook was super short, but I was pretty bored. I just have trouble connecting and caring about the people in their book. ( )

A fast moving, fun little novel about queer librarians fighting fascism in a dystopian futuristic southwest. There's more focus on the characters than on the larger society, but I enjoyed spending time with them and their self discovery that happens on their quest. ( )

Interesting premise - dystopian, mysogynistic America where powerful lesbian librarians are an integral part of the resistance. I appreciated the challenging use of the pronoun "they" - often difficult to follow, but a good stretch of the brain. ( )

Queer Southwestern librarian would be life goals if I wasn’t already doing it, but Sarah Gailey makes it way more exciting with their latest book. A lot of things really clicked for me during this in a way they never did in other Gailey books, and I appreciate that. I would really enjoy reading more stories in this particular world they’ve built, if Gailey is willing to write them. Great characters, lots of action, good world building, queer AF romance, and HORSEBACK LIBRARIANS FIGHTING FASCISM, FUCK YES.

PS: I want the tagline “are you a coward or a librarian?” on all the damn things in the universe. I want to carry that specific energy with me every time I go to work. ( )

I'm loving the novella format in that you're thrust into a context where you have to figure out what's happening from all the little clues, but oh my gosh. It wasn't even the ending that teared me up. it was the last page of the author's note. It was beautiful and tied the whole thing together. Somehow Sarah Gailey's writing does this every time! (I'm still totally haunted by Magic is for Liars!) ( )

As Esther breathed in the sweet, musty smell of the horse blankets in the back of the Librarians' wagon, she chewed on the I-told-you-so feeling that had overwhelmed her ever since her father had told her the news about Beatriz.
