Review: 2019.068 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: I liked the realistic description of the women in the coven and how they interacted with each other. I also loved the reactions of the people at the funeral when the old grandmother sat up in her coffin.

Con: It’s all background info with no payoff at the end. We knew from the start that Dust had some sort of powers. By the end, all that really happens is that the coven officially accepts her.
