Absolutely gorgeous. Its magical and made me feel so much. The prose is beautiful and so vividly real that I felt like you reached directly into my childhood and pulled this out. I remember those hot nights when it hadn't rained in months, I remember packing my bag with adventurer's gear and sneaking out into the night, exploring old buildings, looking for magic, not wanting to be a girl, trying not to be afraid of the dark. Everything that went into this, the art, the music, the story, is so well done. Just beautiful.
