There are lines in here that will stay with you long after you have finished reading and characters that become close friends. A novel that begins in darkness but will leave you with so much light.

Published: Tor Nightfire - February 22nd, 2022

A horror book that centers around gender politics in a way that doesn't use trauma in the queer community as its only crutch! A wildly entertaining read that also makes you think about the world around us and the horror that exists today. Side note: if you are also angry with J.K. Rowling because.. duh... there is a moment in this book specifically for you. CW: transphobia, mental health, mentions of self harm, graphic violence
