What a well-written book of short stories! Fantasy is usually not my genre but I really enjoyed these--maybe because they were more speculative fiction? Regardless, Barnhill's prose is wonderful so even the couple stories I merely liked rather than loved were still worth reading. Highly recommended.

Fantastical stories of women who don't conform. Atmospheric, magical, and weird stories with a fairy tale quality. Haunting and beautiful, and sometimes disturbing. Most enjoyable.

Fanciful and unusual stories that are interestingly written and entertaining. Not really a YA book, unlike others she has written, so don’t let that dissuade you if you like fiction somewhat in the vein of Neil Gaiman.
