THE GOOD LUCK GIRLS
The country of Arketta calls them Good Luck Girls--they know their luck is anything but. Sold to a "welcome house" as children and branded with cursed markings. Trapped in a life they would never have chosen.
When Clementine accidentally murders a man, the girls risk a dangerous escape and harrowing journey to find freedom, justice, and revenge in a country that wants them to have none of those things. Pursued by Arketta's most vicious and powerful forces, both human and inhuman, their only hope lies in a bedtime story passed from one Good Luck Girl to another, a story that only the youngest or most desperate would ever believe.
It's going to take more than luck for them all to survive.
Giving this a 4 star rating. I enjoyed the action provided in this story. I adored the western atmosphere and language. The world building, though minimal, still pulled me into the story and made feel like I was in the time. The writing was done well, it all flowed seamlessly for me.
Aster was a sassy and bold character. I loved her! She seemed to be more fearful and sensible than all the others. She was wise, sassy and bold. She's loud and speaks her mind. Clementine was the sweet, naive girl. I didn't really connect with her as a character. I felt bad for what happened to her, but she pretty much annoyed me. Violet was amazing. She was definitely annoying at times, but she was just as sassy as Aster. Tansy and Mallow were adorable as well!
Violet and Tansy had such terrible upbringings. Tansy not as bad as Violet, but still terrible in my opinion. Violet had harbored so much anger and hurt. That ending killed me!
I enjoyed the dynamics between the girls and that cute romance between Tansy and Mallow. Aster and Violet were perfect with their banter. They helped each other on the journey to find Lady Ghost.
Zee was a nice addition, but at the same time I didn't really understand his purpose within the story outside of guiding the girls. He just felt like an extra body. I do find him mysterious though.
That ending explaining exactly who Lady Ghost was interesting and also disappointing at the same time. I enjoyed the explanation, but that final chapter felt like a time skip. I also want to learn more about the magic system because the favors are enchanted and seem to be an interesting aspect.
Definitely interested in seeing how the next book goes in the series.
