The rich stew of the author's creations--SingleEarth, vampires, shapeshifters, Tristes, the Bruja Guilds--are at full boil here in the story of two 20-ish young women trying to out run their very different pasts, and figure out where they fit in and who they might become. Each has landed in a more "normal" place, and each wonders if, like a tattoo that can't be covered up, they can ever really fit into "normal.
