For some people, what apparently drew them to this book are the crow element as well as the allusion to Six of Crows, which I have yet to finish. Feel free to hate me. But what made me excited to start this personally was the fact that mental illness is discussed, even though fantasy worlds prefer to focus on the action and magic more than the relationship one has with themselves, their own body – mental health. I think bringing something typically contemporary into a non-contemporary genre can be refreshing, interesting and the pavement for new establishments in the said genre.
