Really beautiful story about not beautiful people for a change. This had a beauty-and-the-beast feel to it but I like that it had a realistic happily ever after, as opposed to the Disney happily ever after. I'm not glad that Neaf has pain (although they tried to resolve some of that) but I do like that he didn't stay pretty and I loved
that Aerie-Smith had actually felt his real body that whole time! I had wondered about that and I'm glad they addressed it.
