Review: Kyth the Taker
Jonathan Howard writes beautiful prose with stunning imagery, and the publisher set this short anthology in a beautiful binding to match. Kyth is an intriguing character: not a thief but someone who retrieves objects that were stolen. She has the air of a stoic Indiana Jones or an architectural hacker in a setting rife with mythology and magic. The narrative distance, however, didn’t work for me. This was a nice read but not my favorite jam.
