It's been a while since I burned through a book as quickly as this one. It asks, is normal something you can get back, or just something you get used to?

It is very rare that every short story in a collection blows me away, but GennaRose has done it. I was left completely breathless over her prose, heartbroken over her characters, and in desperate need for just one more story. Read it in one go or savor each word, but don't let this one pass you by.

THIS IS SO GOOD. This is epic fantasy is so so so full of emotion and mystical powers and incredibly relevant commentary that you could literally never ask for anything more. I am not often one for books over 500 pages but this one had me hooked & I will promptly be reading the rest of the series.

Full disclosure: this book made me weep like a child. This is a book about grief, and trauma, and how that changes us, especially as children. It's a shockingly plausible horror story interwoven with a fantasy story that both rescues and reflects our protagonists from their own story.

All I knew going into this book was that it was about an amnesiac vampire, and that since it was by Octavia Butler it was going to be wonderful. And truly, it surpassed all my expectations. Part mystery, part vampire story, part courtroom drama, this book is absolutely riveting. As soon as I finished it I found myself frantically googling whether Butler had ever had plans to continue Shori’s story (she died before she could publish a sequel, but there are some notes on what it could have been).
