Have you ever wanted to hear us talk a lot about having a troll boyfriend and a sword? You’re in luck, because this week we’re chatting about Holly Black’s Valiant, in which those two basic human desires are satisfied. Also, how much is too much to show, why do we love monster romance, and finding ourselves in a story about finding yourself.
To get right to the Valiant talk, skip to 00:25:00.
Warnings: This one’s marked explicit for a reason, folks. Alongside a bunch of cussing, you also have graphic discussions (by us and in the book) of drug use and some discussion of sexual assault.
