Brisk action balances the meditations on gender and glimpses of the complex magic system as this unpredictable tale wends to an intense and deeply moving climax. It’s bittersweet and lovely.

THE UNBALANCING is a beautiful novel, and a welcome ramping-up of Lemberg’s Birdverse.  Tachyon Publications looks like they’re making a stunning physical book to complement this rich and deep story.
