[pb_blockquote author=”Kelly, Mysterious Galaxy Books”]A sprawling fantasy teeming with deep and meaningful magic. One of the things I like most about this debut is that it raises very real and important issues of our time through multiple character’s perspectives. No character is one-dimensional, and every character must learn from failure and introspection to become who they were meant to be.[/pb_blockquote]
