It’s tough to be a woman, especially in a superhero world. They tend to be casualties to the storylines of men, and it’s so common there’s a name for it: women in refrigerators. Valente gives these women a voice and the chance to take their stories back and claim their own narrative. It’s brutal, brilliant, and beautiful and even knowing the stories can’t end well, you find yourself hoping maybe this one will be different.

The easiest way to describe this book is as a good and compelling Hamlet retelling (starring a trans character!), but it's so much more than that. It's a murder mystery, a revenge story, and a musing about the power of language and intention, with a wonderfully built mythology and a fascinatingly weird narrator.
