Elder Race posits a very important question: what if one character was living in a sci Fi story while another was living in a fantasy story?

Nyr and Lynesse navigate two sides of the same story as anthropologist and warrior princess who join forces to fight a strange nebulous demon. 

I can't recall the last time I had so much FUN reading a book. Just pure unabashed joy at trying to figure out what each person thought the other was saying.

A short novella combining Sci-Fi and Fantasy. I like that there was enough character building into Nyr and Lynesse that I felt like I understood the world without getting distracted.

Murderbot vibes in the best way. Goofy, corny, good times. Not really a deep thinker.
