Disappointing! Reminded me very strongly of [b:The Once and Future Witches|49504061|The Once and Future Witches|Alix E. Harrow|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1582634494l/49504061._SY75_.jpg|74822550], which I was only so-so on and still started grittier and more interesting than this. I started reading the author note at the back (whoops, bad sign), McKay's related to Nathaniel Hawthorne and one of the nastiest Salem witch trials judges as well as a victim and this was the entire impetus for the book? I thought I'd give it until page 50 to get interesting, but on page 34 the nice good pure dream fairies are giving a main character a prophetic dream and....

"The entire balance of magic was at stake. The moon was full. The time was nigh. The prophecy had foretold it."

k, thx, bye!

I understand the compulsion to include the doctor's observations and voice, but I found them distracting. Moth is a fabulous character and this is a great story
