You'll love it! -or- You'll hate it! I doubt you'll be ambivalent. In this tale Faxon again uses his unusual outlook on life to poke a hot button --or six!

I can't think of a way to write a comprehensive review without giving the whole thing away, so I won't give you a plot summary beyond the protagonist makes a pact with the All Mother and gets to do some fantasy paranormal magic stuff through three lives. He helps some people. He kills some people (that need it) and some that probably don't. He changes the social order of that world. And as is usual with Faxon, he tosses in an unanticipated twist or two. To tell you more would spoil the tale.

Minimal (if any) grammar oopses and Faxon's normal quirky story telling allows me to rate this one a solid 10-10-10. But, if you've read my reviews of other Faxon tales you know I like his style so, as always, YMMV.
