When I started reading Kimeno I was not sure how I felt about it. I almost felt confused, as confused as Kimeno is by the world! The concept of a world where people are named through actions and given magical artefacts. However, the more I read, the more I realized I was fascinated by the ideas and wanted to learn more about the world. Particularly in one major area, what are artefacts and how are they made?
Beyond my curiosity and amazement induced questions, I found myself genuinely enjoying this very original world. Now when I say an original world, I mean a genuinely original world. This is not a copy and rename of the usual fantasy worlds. Everything in this novella feels new. And I love it! I strongly suggest this novella for anyone who is looking for something that feels new. Sick of the same fantasy troupes? PICK THIS UP! You will not regret it.
Also… I need to know more about the Immaculate Butlers! I want more!
