    I thought the best things about this story were the snappy writing style, the intense and intriguingly quirky characters, and the interesting twists on mythology. There are a few times when the wording was a little awkward or I found I'd attributed dialogue to the wrong character, and sometimes I couldn't keep up with the different kinds of magic being introduced, but none of this got in the way of me being able to enjoy the story. I could see these characters showing up again in something longer. There's also a really fun excerpt from another work in the back.
