Ardent is an absolutely relatable gem. To be quite frank, I was not expecting to be as engrossed as I was.
Spoiler: the ending lives on a sort of cliff hanger, but getting there is so worth it. Although, even if it ended as it did, it would still ultimately be a good stand alone ending, from a self riotous perspective.
Overall, I absolutely adored it. And the narrator has a natural gift. Something which just gives the book a natural charm and character.
