The masterful use of language. Shytei Corellian knows how to tell a story. The personal journeys of Wing and Nien are very much tied to the greater narrative. Very descriptive and emotive themes throughout the book. We see how they deal with the expectations of others and the need to be true to themselves, and how their understanding of their place in the world grows, finding a connection to spirit. This is a wonderful book to get absorbed into.
It is a great read.
