Hunter's Review

This book wasn’t at all what I expected. In a first person narrative, Kara begins a journey that takes her across the land and through parts of her mind she cannot explain. I wanted to relate to her more than I did. She’s confused, and rightly so considering what is going on with her, but that confusion was so focused, so prevalent in the story that her mind and emotions were all over the place, a difficult narrative for me to digest in the first person.

A thought provoking and unusual blend of fantasy and science fiction gave me a too brief glimpse into a strange world populated by familiar and alien life forms. I rated the novella three stars, though imaginative, I never connected with the first person narrator. I'll be watching for the next release from this author.

Step into a world where dodos and quaggas roam and biomechanical mages create biomechanoid devices that have a life of their own. Hone blends the magic of fantasy with the wonder of SF effortlessly, bringing us a bitter-sweet story of love lost and found, as Kara tries to untangle the twisted strands of her past after escaping the airship Husk.

I liked this novella. The writing was engaging and the world Carol has created has some interesting elements and is quite unique - I loved the trinkologists and their trinkets. The question this book raises is what makes us human and the ending does make you think.

I live on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia, and have a absorbing passion for writing. My family get my attention in between the manic phases of writing that I go through. I even pat them sometimes. Luckily they don’t seem to mind eating takeaway food and dodging the rolling balls of hair and feathers that accumulate in our house due to the sixteen or so pets we own.

Unlike almost any oth
