   Annoying "they"
They, theirs, and them are used throughout the book for Zale. This is not pleasant. The same pronouns are frequently used in the same scene for different characters. I don't care what type of people Zale wants to sleep with, I can't tell who was doing what within a paragraph. The clarity of the story is being undermined by Zale's sex change. She claims that non- binary people read the manuscript. A small group of people might find the confusion of their character clear. The rest of us want to know who is doing what, and such hijacking of pronouns in mid- paragraph destroys meaning and story.

   Utterly Satisfying
The world building and religion are wonderful, of course, and the quirkiness and funny levels are absolutely perfect. The characters push this to its limits. I loved Halla and Sarkis very much. I love that kindness is useful. I loved that Sarkis was so protective of it and that it worked. It isn't all romance. That part is very strong. It's more about how low stakes, personal adventure is just as important as the save the world quests. There's a refreshing layer of practicality underneath the whimsy and magic that makes it feel a bit like a Robin McKinley movie. It's a combination that always leaves me very satisfied.

   Fantastic as always
If you like Ursula Vernon's work, you should like this book. If you enjoy a good romance and like her writing, you' ll love this book. Halla is a stand in for the author and her readers because Vernon asks the important questions about fantasy. How does that magic work? How does it affect your stomach? Is it possible for dead people to also be immortal? The real hero of the story is a gender neutral Rat God, and I will keep them there forever.
