    Pitched as Six of Crows meets... Forget the rest, Six of Crows is all I care about lol. I really like multiple PoVs but eight seems like a bit much. I hope, if we do get that many perspectives, it is well done.

They must quickly learn to use their inherent (and illegal) magic in order to get the job done.The magic system is based off of emotions, and magic users--Empaths--can channel emotions to conjure or destroy. Eight Will Fall is a high fantasy stand-alone novel with a healthy dose of cosmic horror. It is a single-POV mission/survival book (not a heist :) ).If you're a gaming nerd, think Dead Space set in a Skyrim cave. For movie geeks, The Descent meets a high-fantasy version of The Goonies. Initially, I came up with the magic system for this book based on a whim, ignoring what subconsciously drove me to choose emotions. As I began therapy for general anxiety disorder, I realized that I've been driven or coerced into suppressing my emotions my entire life, because the degree that I experience emotions makes me look weak. I'm a crier, and I'm often easily frustrated and panicked. I wear my heart on my sleeve and my feelings are always displayed clearly on my face and in my body language. In a way, writing this book was a continuation of therapy as I developed a world where emotions are fuel for magic, and magic is feared. I'm very excited to share EIGHT WILL FALL with the world, and I hope you love it as much as I do. -Sarah

    Six of Crows meets Suicide Squad? what's the point when Suicide Squad is just less good Six of Crows?(also, guys, this means multi-pov criminals. but I feel like eight characters is too many to juggle?)

    While I never fully connected with the characters as much as I would have liked to, I would love to see more fantasy horror in this vein. There's not enough of it. EIGHT WILL FALL feels appropriately claustrophobic with a creeping sense of dread that permeates throughout the entire novel, but falls short when it comes to characterization. I loved the idea and the overall atmosphere more than the execution and I can see it resonating well with teens who love a decent thriller with maybe a magic s While I never fully connected with the characters as much as I would have liked to, I would love to see more fantasy horror in this vein.

Still, while this was far from a favorite, I enjoyed enough of this book to want to check out more of the author's work in the future.
