Didn't quite hang together for me, despite the unique setting reminiscent of native Inuit lands, and the interesting "primitive" system of magic. Occasionally the language was overly baroque and there was an awkward simile (the "pay attention to me I'm a pretty turn of phrase" thing jarred me out of the story a couple of times), and I found the story and especially the ending unsatisfying. The characters just didn't have enough depth for me. I would not rule out giving this author another try, but this just didn't work for me.
