It's totally on me that I judged this book by its cover, expecting a gothic story about creepy dolls, which, I guess in a way, it kinda is. Just not in the way I expected and this caused me to never really connect with the story or Triss or Pen or anyone really. But for people who actually read the jacket blurb, I'm sure you'll find the story delivers a slow-paced historical fantasy with quiet horror.

Note to self for memory's sake (major spoilers below):
