Amazing use of fantastical elements I honestly loved how stories interact with each other, creating a deep environment that pulls you in more and more as you keep reading. How the cultural, magical elements, and real-life problems mix together is awesome all the way to the end. Hope I see a lot more from this author soon. Read more
