[obligatory Marie Antoinette quote here]
I am a huge fan of magical realism, of worlds where the central character or plot doesn't revolve around a human being at all, and that's why I loved this so much. The language was poetic, the characters driven by their own unique agendas, and the descriptions were so clear and detailed so as to appear in full saturation in my mind (leaning in both savory and gory directions). I also love stories ending in punishments or consequences reflective of the crimes committed over the course of the narrative, so you really nailed that, too. Beautiful job with this – I would love to read more of your work someday!
