Trigger Warnings

Author-Provided Warnings

The following content warnings are found in the author's review on Goodreads:

I won't - as Lorena, our main character, would say - make it toothsome. This book is as bleak and brutal as it is (I hope) encouraging. It's not as gory as my other books (I don't think), but it deals with some heavy concepts and actions. The magic system in this book is based off of sacrifice and heavily features self-harm (specifically cutting) and actions that mirror self-harm. The characters also discuss self-harm at different points in the book. Scenes describing it do occur in first person.

The book also features on-the-page murder and mass murder, references to child death, the deaths of parents, discussions and depictions of sacrifices/executions, references to factory-related accidents and deaths, references to child neglect and abuse, references to filicide, references to sibling deaths, and multiple scenes about death. ETA: There is also a reference to mass suicide.

For more general content, please be aware that this book contains cutting, violence, blood, murder, abuse, and death.
