I completely immersed and lost myself in this original and dark story of magical cupboards, space and time travels, told in a highly folksy manner — more like folktales passed down through generations, by the hearths, enjoyed along with home-made pies and chicken soup. Absolutely enjoyable. I hope it finds a large audience who will appreciate it not just for the nerve-wrecking adventures but for the author’s care in telling the story.
