I’m now at Chapter 10 of ‘Girls of Paper and Fire’. There is a lot of build-up as Lei and the other Paper Girls prepare to meet the Demon King. There’s also lots of history about aristocratic women and their fashion sense, along with deep-rooted class differences between Paper and Steel castes. I really appreciate Lei’s growing bond with her personal maid. It provides her a link to a (very small) network of female companions. I’m trying not to get my hopes up too much, since this is an emotional story, revolving around a group of nine women vying for the King’s attention. I do like what I’m reading though.
