Review: 2019.632 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Part of the fun of the story is figuring out what’s going on. Once we realize that gods possess the bodies of special humans and ceratopsids, the rest seems clear enough.

Because of the framing story, there’s not much tension in the trip, although the encounter with the bandits was kind of fun.

Con: The ending didn’t entirely make sense. I don’t really blame Dev-Gemot for squishing Bari, but I’m surprised Havva became the new priest and (I think) Vasil’s wife.
