Flesh and Stone, by Kathryn Yelinek

★★★☆☆ Average

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Perrin gets what he wanted, albeit at terrible cost.

The story does a nice job of revealing information a bit at a time. E.g. we think the count will be unhappy that Perrin took a statue, but we discover that he knew all about it.

Con: Perrin is kind of a stalker. Marie really had no choice in this, and he would never have turned her back if she hadn’t been dying.
