Brilliant and weird. P djèlí Clark portrays the realities of racism in a way that highlights the horrific while also honoring legacies of resilience and healing.

It was a bit gross, a bit scary, a bit intense, but I enjoyed this! So far, for me, Clark can't miss!

 This started out so strong. I was loving it but it just kept getting more and more confusing with the plot. I was lost by the end. I know it was me not the book with how many loved this novella so don't let my review stop you from picking it up. It was just so much in such a short amount of time that I couldn't keep up. Really wanted to love this.

4.5 ⭐️ but rounded up to 5 here

book 10 for my october horror reading challenge


this was absolutely fantastic. i admit at first it wasn’t quite my vibe because it felt very fantasy-esque, and i’m unfortunately just not a fantasy guy, but as i got into the story and the world it got really good. to me the only book ive read that felt similar to this is hell followed with us by andrew joseph white, as in it's set in a world overrun by bigot monsters, and told as if it's fantasy but with a horror-like plot. overall more dark fantasy than horror, but very good.
