Review: 2017.084 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Crow wants to complete his assignment for the emperor, but legitimately getting out of the obligation is even better. The seeress wants to continue to promote rebellion, and with Crow on her side, she’s in a much stronger position.

Crow’s abilities are quite interesting, as is the curse he’s under.

Con: The story is mostly loose ends. It reads like the opening chapter of a novel.
