Feels like an Arthurian legend, a mix of fairy tales but grounded in a reality somewhat like our own with some fantastical twists layered into it.

Short and sweet, deserving of all the praise it has received.

Christ is implied to have existed in this universe so that’s a little confusing. Where and when are we then? But it feels like an alternate fantastical reality.

Inverting tropes: instead of a prince saving a princess, the princess wants to kill the prince and save her sister.

It takes a while to get going by once Marra starts her quest, I was sucked in. It’s a more of a preference for me, but as someone who doesn’t move around a lot I always enjoy a story about someone on a journey.
