Senrid - Sherwood Smith I liked parts of this.... Its strength is the multiple views of the eponymous character, whose struggles would seem too simple without that context. I don't mean that Smith complicates things unnecessarily, rather that it'd be hard for the reader to grasp the whole without the antagonistic reactions conveyed by Faline, Kyale, and the rest.
The epub version has a few distracting errors, which I didn't note down.
