★★★☆☆—First, and most important: why not call a raven a raven? A large, solitary crow? That’s a raven! Crows live in flocks and are much smaller than ravens. Don’t ask if it’s big enough to be a raven; ask if it’s small enough to be a crow.
★★★☆☆—A very, very, very, very steamy sapphic retelling of Peter and the Wolf, with an odd second half.
★★★★☆—A moving, epic, groundbreaking YA fantasy with an unfortunately weak set-up.
★★★☆☆—A fairy tale mash-up lead by two uncommon protagonists, each carrying their own burden of regrets.
★★★☆☆—A lushly described romantic retelling.
★★★☆☆—A retelling with lovely prose that never wrangles its elements into a cohesive whole.
Here’s a fun fact: the main character shits herself.
It’s a Greek myth retelling.
Is it a good retelling? No, but all things considered, it’s not inherently bad either.
Outrun the Wind is niiice and mediocre.

Neither are very good.
