Go To

A work of speculative fiction by Charlie Jane Anders.

Contains examples of:

  • Artificial Intelligence: Lawrence builds a supercomputer & asks if Patricia wants to talk with it. It is a surprisingly good conversationalist.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: The Nameless Order Of Assassins now has a rule against the killing of children.
  • Literal Transformative Experience: Patricia's first use of demonstrably real magic is to transform into a bird to escape her tyrannical older sister. The confidence and sense of freedom she achieves as a result ultimately paves the way for her saving Lawrence from military school, learning how to use her powers consciously, and eventually levelling up into a Blue-Collar Warlock hero.
