This second story in this anthology is very different from the first. The main character is a 13 year old girl. This short story is more intense than the first in the book, filled with creatures other than human.
There has been a series of murders of children in the city and this is pretty much a murder mystery/cop procedural done in a fantasyscape. Wasn’t sure at the beginning but by half way through this story I was invested in the outcome. Thanks to this little tale I think I will look into Michelle Sagara for more reading material. I like this world for sure.
