What a great, cold, horrible world Muir has conjured up! I loved every bit. She paints with such a delightful vocabulary, beautifully balanced with the earthy snark of Gideon. You'll likely not come across this many bone references outside of an anatomy textbook, but that just adds to the delightful grittiness.
Gideon the Ninth is a monster-laden locked-room-murder-mystery, with excellent swordplay and unrequited love. One flesh, one end!
