When marauders raid her town, Maire is captured and sold to the eccentric Allemas, who enslaves her and demands that she produce sinister confections, including a witch's gingerbread cottage, a living cookie boy, and size-altering cakes.
During her captivity, Maire is visited by Fyel, a ghostly being who is reluctant to reveal his connection to her. The more often they meet, the more her memories return, and she begins to piece together who and what she really is - as well as past mistakes that yield cosmic consequences.
From the author of The Paper Magician series comes a haunting and otherworldly tale of folly and consequence, forgiveness and redemption.

A little weird
On the whole, I liked it, but it was a little weird at times. It's fairly short, too. I can't say what I missed, but I missed something -- maybe the thing that glues the story together.
The bits before a new chapter starts threw me at times, because in the narrated version, it wasn't exactly clear that a new chapter began, and the text seemed completely unrelated to the story. It's a lot clearer in the printed version, cause it is in italics, so you know it's a dream sequence, or a memory, or something.
The narrator has a lisp, which I found a little irritating at times, but she narrated well, so I stuck with the audio book.
