Valente also wrote the Fairyland series, of which I only read the first volume, but even so, I was super impressed with her writing ability, especially her descriptions . And Radiance hasn’t disappointed me so far. I am halfway through and I highlighted so many amazing quotes! Ah, and if you are wondering, the quote I chose is referring to the taste of the petals of a flower that grows on Pluto. That’s all I’m gonna say now. I will probably tell you more about it in a wrap-up on YouTube, so keep close!
