it was amazing

I discovered this book by chance, drawn to it by its title and I'm glad I decided to give it a shot, because it was truly amazing. Miss Taylor's writing is heartbreakingly beautiful -no, seriously, it tears the soul apart to read her descriptions of Prague and Loramendi and Brimstone's shop and, most of all, the protagonists' emotions. Karou and Akiva are both great heroes, fleshed out and believable, as are the secondary characters. The plot, though simple in its core, is intricately crafted and with such imagination that it manages to give new breath to an old story. Short version: I absolutely loved it!
