Kill Three Birds by Nicole Givens Kurtz is delightful. I’ve never visited anywhere like the Egg of Gould! In a world where people are literally also birds, Ms. Kurtz has created a land that is unique and vibrant, and where the world building is so a part of the story that it never feels forced or overdrawn. Part mystery, part societal exploration, interesting characters draw the reader in from the start, and there is always a sense that there is much more to the people we meet than what is revealed. This adds lovely depth to this novella. Definitely recommend for anyone looking for a truly new experience in fantasy. I am looking forward to the next book.
