ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review Thank you Beyond the Black Door follows Kamai, a Soulwalker that can enter people s souls or Nehyn, a representation of one s soul Every time Kamai visits someone s Nehyn there s a Black Door that follows her Kamai s mother is hiding secrets and tells her never, never to open that door However, like a good old fairytale, circumstances lead the heroine to open it What s beyond the Black Door Kamai will find out I must say I m impressed The author built an intricate world with beautiful mythology and imagery I enjoyed very much learning about the culture, rules, and classes, the worldbuilding was quite compelling.I thought the asexual protagonist which falls into the grey area of assexuality and the LGBTI representation was well done This is perhaps the very first YA Fantasy where I feel that LGBTI rep is not underwhelming and that is instead, fair and inclusive This book was unique in everything I ve ever read Nowadays, we find a lot of hypersexualized YA, so having an ace protagonist was so refreshing There are all kinds of people in the world and all of them should have their representation in fiction as well It is important to acknowledge all sexual orientations.I loved the way the author introduced the theme in the plot, and actually having the characters discussing it The characters, all of

Unlike anything I ve ever read before The mythology of the world in Beyond the Black Door is so interesting three gods representing the sun, moon and earth and woven into the story beautifully I love a good romance in my fantasy books, so I wasn t sure how the story would play out with a asexual main character, but I really appreciate how the author presented Kamai s feelings especially i
tagging this as it has an ace mc I believe ALL I KNOW ABOUT THIS BOOK IS THAT IT HAS OWN VOICES ASEXUAL REP AND I M HERE FOR IT.
