This is, to be honest, like no book I have ever read and it is also the most Furry-esque published novel I have found.

Yep, I read it. And I enjoyed it. Not a great book by any means; a fan-fiction-y story - though with a slightly better than fan-fiction level of writing - and WAY too many footnotes (come on Paul, that’s just lazy. Terry Pratchet only gets away with that because HIS footnotes are always funny), it was also pretty, and tragic, and fantastical, and pretty, and romantic, and sweet, and pretty. Did I mention that it was pretty? Terrie Smith’s illustrations were pretty too.

This is another great book by Paul Kidd. The characters are very fleshed out and memorable, and evolve significantly as the story progresses. If you're familiar with his work then this should feel familiar, although it is a considerably sadder story than his usual fare. There were plenty of times through the story that I honestly didn't know who (if anyone) was going to make it to the end. A great book for fans of fantasy and/or anthropomorphic settings.
