This book is beautifully written and I do recommend it to people who enjoy really cerebral fantasy, especially by authors like Poppy Z. Brite and Tanith Lee. That said, it wasn't really my cup of tea. There is too much body horror and I had a really hard time following some of the convoluted narratives, as this is told in multi-POVs from the views of gods inhabiting a mortal named Ada. I love the LGBT+ (trans) African fantasy rep but this book just wasn't my personal cup of tea.
2 out of 5 stars
