Beautiful myth re-weaving with sophisticated and hauntingly poetic prose. While also presenting a straight-forward story that explores the binary between fate and free will. I really enjoy it when an author explores a quassi-omniscient point of view because the voice of the character is an immortal being. How does such a being understand time differently? How would they measure life and death, or the rise and fall of civilizations?

Beware, mortal! "This is a story about the end of the world." (pg.1).
