In my personal opinion, I don't think there is a more important book coming out in the Sff genre this year. It weaves history and beautiful language with fantasy elements to craft a narrative that brings light to stories that are not common in everyday history classes and discussions around race. I also cannot wait to see, since clipping. was involved in writing the novel, if there are lyrics to songs or hymns that are brought up in the Remembrance.
Also, the cover is absolutely stunning and seems to reference a scene at the beginning of the novel.
