Another fine entry into this collection of novels. It is almost as rare as the creature chosen for this tale showed up in myths as it does in novels. The shape shifting Chimera is a mix of creatures in mythology and so it is here.
Handled deftly by this author, we have a tale of betrayal, immortality, hatred, misunderstanding and ultimately love and acceptance.
Ms Liu writes tales that are deep yet fast moving. We have characters, such as Sonia, who have had hard lives and need to learn to trust and adapt to catastrophic changes in their lives. This book was a fast read for me but well worth the time.
