This is a deeply immersive story. The setting and characters possess a texture that I rarely find in "fantasy" fiction. The titular characters are, naturally (supernaturally?), extraordinary, but they are immediately relatable because of the author's attention to detail and the unique voices she gave them. About the only thing I can critique is the ending, which seemed somehow abrupt. It certainly completed the story, but I wanted a little bit more.

All in all, this is well worth the read. Prepare to linger over this one!
