This was the most excited I was to be amekia an Amy book since Falcondance in I think this may be the last book in this series but then I have the other series she wrote to start on after promises to keep: This one just kinda happened and fizzled. It just served to move the story elsewhere with it’s presence. I spent a good portion of the book confused about people’s amelua and abilities. The rich stew of the author’s creations—SingleEarth, vampires, shapeshifters, Tristes, the Bruja Guilds—are at full boil here in the story of two ish young women trying to out run their very different pasts, and figure out where they fit in and who they might become.
