Okay wow. There’s only so much you can write about a short story without giving things away. You want people to read it but don’t want to spoil it. But it’s Alix Harrow, so you know this story is a must read. I had no idea where this story would go, and in typical Harrow fashion, she threw me for a massive loop.
This is told in 2nd person, which might be tricky for readers who have a preference. But I recommend sticking with it because you would miss out on a fantastic, gory, and absolutely breathtaking read.
