Brooke Bolander proves she can write non-depressing things with The Tale of the Three Beautiful Raptor Sisters and the Prince Who Was Made of Meat, a wonderful and inspiring fairy tale for young raptor chicks and also witches.

Ahh this rules. I was lucky enough to see Brooke read this in person a few weeks back and loved it.

This fairy tale has the happiest ending I have read in a long time.

Split us apart and we are nothing, but together—oh, together—there is nothing we cannot bring crashing and spouting to earth.

I have tears.

This was just awesome. I love the point-of-view of the story, and the tone and it definitely has a satisfyingly happy ending.

This was such a delight to read. I started skimming the first paragraph during a meeting and got so into it that I tuned everything out and ignored the moment I was supposed to present something

Worth it!!

So. Fucking. Awesome. I didn't listen to the audio but I can only imagine Dame Angela Lansbury reading it.
