Deep Roots by Ruthanna Emrys
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I continue to be fascinated by Ruthanna Emrys' work reshaping the Lovecraft legacy. This book struck a different cord than did Winter Tide. While Winter Tide was character driven, the broadened world in Deep Roots took longer to engage me emotionally. A book that in large part challenges the reader to consider "otherness" and its benefits and risks, it is certainly a timely topic. I'll post a longer review when I find the time, post-Hugo reading, to listen to the book again on audio. In the interim, this book was a fascinating exploration in the era of resurgent fascism, encampment, and how we treat others who do not look like us.
I received a paperback ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
