eldrithcpossumcat ,

Wow, goes right for the heart!

Great world building and a talented cast! I love this so much, and the finale, for season 01 oof! Tears will be shed!

Anne Onimous II ,

Great audio drama!

Intriguing worldbuilding. Engaging characters. I can't wait to learn more!

kmk1029878 ,

Started strong

I really enjoyed the first few episodes but the show is uneven and meandering. I was just listening to episode 8 and felt such frustration and annoyance with the characters that I decided to quit.

On the plus side-some of the performances are very good and the theme music is lovely.
