I feel very honoured by this review by one of the coolest women in horror, Laura Mauro. Thanks to her and Jim Mcleod of Ginger Nuts of Horror.
Sharma’s tales are at their strongest and most poignant when they concern love, be it consuming, denied, or realized late. Their magic is usually one surreal piece fitted tightly into a puzzle of normalcy, that often roars up by the end to reshape everything. Sharma leaves tantalizing clues throughout her stories that make the conclusions surprising yet satisfying. Fantasy fans who want their stories deep and intense will consider this a fabulous debut.

I went out in the rain to collect a parcel from the Post Office depot this morning. It contained an unexpected gift from fellow writer and friend Penny Jones. It’s a quote from “Fabulous Beasts”.
Thank you, Penny Jones. My eyeliner is all over my face now, but not because of the rain.
