Here is my Amazon Review of it (one of many five star reviews!)

The characters and plot are all good and-well presented, but what I really love about this book is the mythology/cosmology that brings it alive. Thin places, spiritual harmonies, meaningful covenants, awesome (and awful… and even absurd!) creatures, the ontological consequences of sin and holiness, forgiveness and revenge; it’s all there and so thoroughly integrated into the plot that you can really feel it. I’m an Orthodox Christian priest and seminary professor who preaches and teaches the real-life versions of these things and I recommend this book without reservation.
