Enjoyable

Good story with a great mix of mythology. The acting was a bit over the top for me, but I couldn’t stop listening. Engaging short story that is worth your time to listen.

Really good podcast

Nice world building and compelling plot. Lead actress is excellent, a bit uneven in the supporting cast but well worth a listen and I hope the creator comes back with more.
