Fangirl Happy Hour, Episode #22 – “I Did Not See That Coming”

Ana and Renay read The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin, the first in an epic fantasy trilogy about the many times the world has ended. Then, they get all bittersweet as they read Lumberjanes issue #17, the last ever written by Noelle Stevenson. Finally, they get around to discussing the first volume of The Wicked + The Divine.
