A prequel to the magical novella Made Things. I enjoyed this prequel more than the novella.
It had a fairytale feel to it. The world was more fully envisioned than the novella. The characters remained a bit more one-dimensional though.
I liked Tam and that he wanted more for his child than he had been given. Poor guy.
The ending left me unsatisfied. It feels unfinished.
