This dark fantasy blew my mind! Violent, engaging, a whole different world to escape into! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💜
A wonderful book about faeries and genies and storytale creatures brought down to a crushing realistic setting. Cargill's main strength is in toeing the line of dark/harsh and retaining some of the magical nature that enraptures us with these stories. While a very dark novel with quite a number of terrible events occurring it manages to never feel crass, for shock or gritty for the sake of it. Squidapus was excited to learn there's a sequel!
