really liked it

Prose - The prose in the prologue and first chapter is exceptional, but it flattens out after (it's not bad, just simpler).

Story - X-Men meets Peter Pan, teenage love, Nazi (and some non-Nazi) monsters that want to be gods. All good elements, born from collections of old photos seen by the author. Inventive at times, cliché at others.

Favorite thing - The peculiar children. Entertaining and interesting. I especially liked Millard and Enoch.

Least favorite thing - Chapters are waaaaay too long for my taste. A lot to ingest and process in each.

Overall - Recommend.
