5th sentence, 74th page: And as a man.
Sophia Sidway, Midcity’s most dangerous memory revisionist, seeks out the mysterious Monk in the wasteland beneath the Tangle turnpike, hoping for redemption… but it turns out that the Monk is not all that pious, and the turnpike is no turnpike at all.
I love when you read a novella with absolutely no expectations what-so-ever. And then find that you just can’t put it down. That it is impossible to forget. And introduces you to a world you didn’t know you wanted to be a part of. For me, this was that kind of novella. It made me want to go straight out and buy the rest of this series. But I didn’t, because I need to learn some form of self-control… not something I’m admittedly enjoying at this point.
The symbolism of the Tangle was something that drew me in from the beginning. Not only was it a great and intriguing mystery, but the suffering and confusion of the people was reflected in its dark, twisty interior. This dark setting and overwhelming city almost acted like a third character in the story, and one that I would love to meet again and again throughout this series.
The many moral and ethical questions raised by Kitten-Tiger’s power linger long after you turn the final page. I understand why she decides to stop utilising it. But what if there were ways that it could be turned for good? Should you still use it? Who gets to decide what is right and good?
