I enjoyed reading about a new type of supernatural creature. Set across several decades this was a unique love story.

I won this book in a giveaway without having ever read anything from GR Lyons before. I am so glad that I did!!

A fantastic story in a man alternate Britain, this novel is rife with 19th century courtesy and love despite all else.

G.R. Lyons stumbled into writing as a form of trauma recovery when traditional therapy wasn't working.

Then the story ideas just kept on coming.

Pulling from a vivid imagination as well as real-life experience as a trans man, a sexual assault survivor, and a person living with mental illness, Lyons has written multiple, interconnected series set within his fictional world of the Shifting Isles.
