*ARC from NetGalley*
Pretty peculiar book, it read as a sort of fairy take giving you little pieces of a puzzle in the shape of stories in each chapter to show you the bigger picture.
It was a bit confusing at first with all the different terms I didn’t know the meaning of, but the more I read the more I was tuned to the story and its characters.
A non binary cleric, a talking animal with fantastic powers, and an old lady with a story. An incredible story.
I don’t think there’s a way to explain this novella. You have to live it.
