    A quirky & tightly written book, highly enjoyable

    I don't read as much fantasy fiction as I used to, however, I follow the author on Mastodon and was intrigued as I liked her #TootFic (short stories) and I thought I'd try it. I'm glad I did. Ree, our heroine, is trying to find her place in her underworld, beyond all the expectations and pressures of her family and community. She meets upworlder Smythe, and the adventures begin. I like that there aren't long chapters detailing descriptions of travel without getting anywhere. Instead, the book gets going immediately and the pace never really stops. Without giving away spoilers, its has librarians and archivists, excitable historians, the undead, spell casting, healers, and shapeshifting. I loved the strength of Ree, who is determined to find her own way and stick to her dreams. And historian Smythe and other characters reactions to him, add humour to the story. Whilst it is a trope of fantasy fiction that the underdog saves the day, this is a quirky and tightly written book that kept me reading into the night. The book stands alone (not a series), but I cannot help hope there might be further adventures for Ree and Smythe. I loved the book and I look forward to reading more of Victoria's work.
