4 pandas

🔮 soft magical colouring
🐱 werewolf girlfriends
🔮 lots of diverse rep (queer, fat, people of colour)
🐱 supernatural baristas working in magical coffee shops
🔮 a non-binary centaur who is obsessed with all things snacks, gossip and their centaur butt
🐱 self-acceptance, love & friendship

Reason for not giving it a 5 star rating is, like other readers, I felt that there were times when the story became rushed especially at the end and there were a few times when the story was a little confusing but otherwise it’s the best magical fluff that you all need in your lives

Mini Reviews: The Tensorate Series | One word: Incredible

Let me start my review off by saying that this series by J.Y Yang is legitimately incredible and deserves all of the stars ever. It’s a beautifully written novella series which contains a breathtaking world, intriguing characters, human/animal relations, and fascinating stories which expertly combine into an overarching plot. Each novella contributes something new, offering different perspectives which keeps the story fresh as well as a rich depth and breadth to the world, which by the way, is AMAZING.
