Travis M. Riddle has once again given us a unique and imaginative tale. As one might expect, given Riddle’s earlier works, Spit and Song is an intensely personal story. It follows Kali, an aspiring merchant, and Puk, a down and out musician addicted to the titular spit. Set in the same world as Balam, Spring it recaptures much of that novel’s wonder and intricate worldbuilding while being entirely fresh and standalone.

One of the first things that helps Spit and Song distinguish itself is the character voice.

The switches between characters throughout the book creates a sense of 'volume' within the novel, keeping people hooked.
Also the time and thought gone into each character is clearly displayed in how deep we can

I've wanted to read one of Travis' books for quite some time now so I'm very thankful that he sent me his new book Spit and Song - and it definitely lived up to the expectations I had.

Spit and Song is set in the same world as one of his previous books, Balam, Spring, but is still a standalone novel.

What's special about it is that the two main characters, Kali and Puk, aren't human.
Kali is a faif, Puk is a qarm.
Both are very loveable characters, at least most o
