I really loved the writing style of this book. The author doesn't write in a conversational, easy-to-read style like most modern books. Her style is more poetic and artful; a nod to classics. The constant conflict with the god of darkness was complex and well-done. I loved how the author always kept the evil one evil even though he softened as a way of being cunning. I kind of figured it would end the way it did, but it was different enough to not disappoint me. I was surprised by the fluid sexuality of the main characters and it threw me off a bit at first. I wasn't a fan of that but it wasn't a huge part of the story so it didn't distract me too much. I also had to ignore the logical fallacy that Addie would be forgotten once she was out of sight, yet she would get to spend a whole day with someone. Did neither person ever go to the bathroom? Those were little details to ignore, but my bigger take away was thinking about my own life up to this point. What have a I seen and experienced? What do I like and don't like? If tomorrow is the end, did I do it well? I love when fiction stories stir the heart and mind.
