I would have never read this if it hadn't been for the Hugo Awards Nominees project I am doing and I'm so glad I did. This hit so many tropes I love. This was a scifi/fantasy fusion, which shows how much the two genres are linked. It has some inter-dimensional stuff going on. AND it has nature based body horror mixed with tech. I loved the way this was done and I look forward to reading more from this author now.
