This is the way the world ends. For the last time. A season of endings has begun. It starts with the great, red rift across the heart of the world's sole continent, spewing ash that blots out the sun. It starts with death, with a murdered son and a missing daughter. It starts with betrayal and long-dormant wounds rising up to fester. This is the Stillness, a land long familiar with catastrophe, where the power of the Earth is wielded as a weapon. And where there is no mercy.

This book blew me away. I loved it so much. The rich world building, the characters, the horrible culture and societal woes, the foolhardiness of Cyanite and the eccentricities and genuineness of Alabaster. This story is a must read.

This book is an excellently researched foray into the turn of the century times of the Chicago World's Fair, and a darkening look into the twisted mind of one of America's first known serial killer. It's altogether fascinating and harrowing, exciting, comical, and engaging. I recommend it to anyone who has a love of learning about the beautiful and simultaneously seedy underbelly that is inescapably a part of American history

This book was amazing. I've always been a fan of Felicia Day. But this book just made me like her more. She's inspirational and motivating, while at the same time she comes across as genuine, kind, smart, funny (I laughed out loud on several parts), and an all around amazing woman. She has accomplished so much on her own, and continues to do so through horrible hateful events. (Gamergate). She has inspired me to never be afraid to be weird or odd and to never be sorry about creating said weirdness. As an artist I always expect the worst from random people on the Internet where I post. But if Felicia is any indication, it's not the trolls that need to be heard or even that little voice inside your head telling you that you're not doing anything right. It's listening to that quieter voice inside that says "keep going. You're doing ok." I'd recommend this book to anyone struggling with their inner creator. Especially young women and even young men who just need to know that their struggles are not pointless. And that everything will be ok. Eventually.
