Nameless: A Tale of Beauty and Madness is truly, truly creepy. It's also not like the usual fairytale retelling YA stories that I've been dabbling in. It's truly dark (more madness than beauty) and starts in media res.

We the reader aren't given a handy cheat-sheet about the world- Lili St. Crow clearly just assumes we can keep up, read between the lines, and figure out the riddles contained within.

Man, I love when an author assumes I'm intelligent.

This one is a relatively quick read, set in a contemporary-with-magic-and-mutations world. Cami is a unique voice, a girl who is suffering from PTSD without knowing it (or why). I love that she stutters, and you can feel her frustration with this difficulty communicating.

I recommend it for fans of fairytale retellings, dark fantasy stories, unique YA books, old-world Grimm-style fairytales, and poetic narratives.
