This short read was wonderful. It grabbed me and held my attention right from the first page. There were so many delightful surprises woven into it. I’m hesitant to say much because I don’t want to spoil it for readers.

I really appreciated how the elements regarding gender and sexual fluidity were simply a matter of fact in the story’s context. They required no explanation, which would have been out of place in the fantasy setting. It was refreshing and much appreciated.

There were so many facets, from mystery and horror to sensual and romantic. Not to mention strong, talented women saving their world–what could be better?

This is my favorite kind of fantasy, where it’s easy to become utterly lost and absorbed in the world the author has created. Even in such a short tale with little detailed world-building, I had a good sense of the characters and setting.

Beautifully written, and I will be looking for more of Ms. Derr’s work to read.
