"Just finished IRKADURA by Ksenia Anske. If there's one thing a book should do, it's leave an impression on the reader. I know that sounds generic, but good lord, this one was anything but generic, and left me feeling raw, pensive and it's as though I have scars on my hands simply from turning the pages. That's the long way of saying this is a powerful, haunting and memorable book. Well, well done."
