We gave it a B

An outcast girl regales a princeling with strange stories featuring shape-shifting sorceresses, a bawdy, hard-drinking mermaid-like creature named Grog, and, yes, vegetarian dog-headed monks sent to kill a female antipope.

For Fans of…
Women Who Run With the Wolves, The Arabian Nights, the Brothers Grimm, Freud, etc.

Last Word
Valente’s lyrical, witchy, sometimes garish fantasy mixes feminist grit and pixie dust.
