It is is very ceremonious, very precise and measured. Actually I thiink it was only anger. We need more stories that show trans people as people. What makes this an exceptional book is the intricate tapestry of characters and themes that are deftly woven together, as well richly textured and evocative writing.

Definitely a must-read, if you haven’t already. However, circumstance does not favour Eon; he is a cripple and despised by the trainers and other candidates for the ceremony. To say that there is much at stake is an understatement, the balance between life and death ever so thin.

The world is well-developed the author’s note states that it was originally inspired by Japanese and Chinese culture, but eventually became its own thing as she was writing it.


When I first started the novel, it started off slow for me. I’m hopeful Eona will learn more about her family in the companion novel.
