Another amazing installment in the Psy Changeling series. Singh did an amazing job writing the romance between two people who had gone through something horrific and made it out, but not without scars.
I found her handling of both disability and neurodivergence incredibly well done, and there are lines of dialogue that will stick with me for years to come. And while some of the details are heavy, those were balanced by humor and joy. Overall, the book was hopeful for the future. 
The plot addresses major questions from previous books in both a fascinating and emotionally compelling way, although it ends with a doozy of a revelation/cliffhanger (not for the romance, that is a HEA). Can't wait to reread this and see all the breadcrumbs I missed the first time.
