really liked it

Beneath its "urban fantasy" facade Dusk or Dark or Dawn or Day digs deep into real-world issues to tackle the solemn themes of suicide, grief, and survivor’s guilt.

The story sets itself apart through its exploration of time, death, hope, and what it means to be alive. The reason for why mirrors are covered after a death in the family, what and who ghosts really are, how and why they "haunt" the living... offer an inventive, fresh look at the concept of ghosts. I loved the witches as potential allies or enemies of ghosts. But my favorite is how Seanan McGuire played with time -- its meaning, its effects, its boundaries... what an imaginative perspective!

Highly recommended for an experience both entertaining and cathartic.
