So clever! I couldn't put it down. Alternate realities growing increasingly dark and twisted. Great suspense and excitement throughout. Some incredible description and a premise that makes you question your own values and reality. I just love his books.
Slow burner that got exciting by the end. Lots of historical context (as I have come to expect from CJ Sanson). Irritatingly straightforward (tragic) female lead who only exists through the male gaze. I cared about her but she only exists to enhance the main character. Didn't care about him much by the end.
