I don't usually read books with a large focus on explicit romance. This was outside my comfort zone. But it more than made up for that in sheer awesomeness.
At times it felt like there were two stories going on — the three way romance and the conflict with a race of all-powerful fanfic authors — but that worked to its advantage; every time I started to predict beats of one story, the other one cropped up, which meant it could repeatedly surprise me. The characters are complex enough to be relatable and yet simple enough to be understandable. The descriptions are eloquent when they need to be. The occasional spice of humor is just enough to stay engaging without becoming a self-parody.
Also? It gives a whole new meaning to the term "love triangle."

Ana Mardoll has constructed a captivating story that goes down easy. The book explores magic, but there is a very small learning curve for the reader to follow how it works. Ana has gifted us a rich cast of memorable characters, and a variety of experiences to empathize with and learn from, including loss, romance, different types of relationships, queerness and mental health. There is a ton of diversity, though I assure you that it does not read as forced. Acceptance rings true in this marvelous tapestry of a story Ana has woven for us. ... It also gets a little sexy.
