This was... interesting. I re-read Hexbreaker shortly after, and I think I do like that better, but this was a new layer of complexity (and a bit of a novelty in the series for its distinctly kinky bent). I enjoyed the exploration of the distinctions in this alt-historical society: which groups are more or less homophobic, and the entrenched prejudices against magical familiars among the wealthy.

My only qualm is that the series has done Viking hexes and Greek ones, so logically we can expect other Ancient Magic in further books - and I gave up on Hawk's Widdershins books for egregious white people fail vis-a-vis native americans *and* Egypt both. I really hope she avoids those two.
