The Ordinary

Jim Grimsley. Set in the same world as Kirith Kirin, this is an engaging, brief story with so many tantalizing details dropped along the way that I hope for more. Generally a plot‐ and character‐driven novel, it does have a few “idea” themes–the major one being the ambiguity of distinguishing magic and sophisticated technology. In great contrast to Kirith Kirin, this book is well edited.
