**I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you very much! This doesn’t affect the review in any way. My opinions, as always, are my own.**
This was my most anticipated book of 2016 and I DNFd it. I say this with a heavy heart because McLemore’s first book, The Weigh of Feathers, is a book I’m always raving about and finding ways to stuff into any TTT post and ugh but don’t you hate it when this happens? You’re declaring this author one of your new favorite people and get so, so excited when you get accepted to review their new book and then boom, disappointment at its finest. I found the language hard to understand and the scenes hard to imagine and frankly? I think McLemore went a bit overboard with all that magical realism. The Weight of Feathers wasn’t like this and I couldn’t help thinking, what the hell went wrong? I love my magical realism and flowery writing and if you’re a constant reader here you’ll know that, but this? This was way too much.
