Review: 2015.519 (A Word for Authors)

The concept of the living houses isn't new, but it's very well developed here, and the author does a good job of making it seem positive.

The arriving humans are a caricature of 19th-century imperialists. It's impossible to believe that they would all be so clueless. That the house would allow young Aoife to violate her mother's orders and kill the captives also shatters disbelief.
