If I could n o t with the Myfanwy/Shantay shippy feelings that’d be Great
How fucking domestic of a closing scene though holy fuck.
Overall I rather enjoyed it, the moments of dry humour were on point. Could have done with a bit of fleshing out to make the characters feel more like characters and less like waystations in the pursuit of the killer, and a bit slowpaced for the huge exposition dump at the end. Interesting worldbuilding and a kinda cool POV format that probably carries better over text than over audio, as it would get distracting at points. A bit heavyhanded with the foreshadowing, and the double fakeout with regards to the identity of the perpetrator had me rolling my eyes (I mean, saw that one coming from a mile away). Good balance of lighthearted and gritty urban fantasy, and overall a well-done first novel.
