Review: Sins of the Father

Sins of the Father Sins of the Father by Thelonious Legend
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I give this book a solid 3.5 stars.

I loved the characters. We have an incredibly huge shortage of books that involve marginalized characters that are not "trying to escape the hood/barrio/rez" and I was so excited to see a book about not only about Black girls but Black girls who also had privilege in the form of financial security.

The storyline was interesting and I loved the ending, the way it wrapped but fairly nicely but also left room for the series to be continued.

The only real issues I had with the book was the pacing (it seemed to drag in spots and I felt like the side characters sometimes bogged the story down in terms of moving forward) and the dialogue felt kind of awkward until I got used to the author's writing style.

Overall, it is a good, quick read and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a diverse book with a little sci-fi twist!

  1. I read this when it was on ARC, and really liked it! I felt similar though, it was a little awkward at parts--I loved the parts about the girls' regular lives, but sometimes the superhero stuff felt thrown in. But I do love the girls. There should be a sequel coming out soon, so I can't see what is next!
