An incredibly clever idea which approaches the idea of 'another world' which exists among our own from a refreshing and interesting perspective. While technically one of the 'others' the protagonist Mackie demonstrates that you are not defined by your heritage, rather your actions. A great read for those who like things with a darker tone which is easy and engaging.
