"The setting in this story is brilliant, expertly combining elements of high fantasy, urban fantasy, and dystopian sci-fi in ways that feel complimentary and natural. The idea of a primordial abomination seeking godhood as an antagonist is inspired, raising the stakes at the onset of the story and keeping them high for the duration. The writing is gripping, the characters are relatable and dynamic, and the story is smart and original. I'm hooked already, and I'm eager to see more!"
