My true rating of this book is 4.5. This is because the message of this book is wonderful and, especially in the last 25 or so pages, wonderfully delivered. The message is also sickening, of course, because the book's a satire so the message is supposed to be. The first half, approximately, definitely wasn't as good as the second; it was entertaining and I liked it, but once I hit the last third of the book, the beginning didn't even compare. The end is especially thrilling and mysterious.

Dark. Fantastical. Interesting.
Ms. Foody has spun a tale of large and shadowy proportions. The heroine (if we can call her that) is a performer in the Gomorrah Festival; a traveling carnival that is proud of its evilness. In fact, their motto is: Wicked, wicked to the core,the city will burn forevermore.
Sorina has an unique talent, even in her extremely diverse world; she can create illusions that you can feel, smell, and believe. But, they are figments of her imagination, of course. Or so she thinks, until one of them is brutally murdered.
