Lightspeed Review

Tangent Online reviewer Cyd Athens has this to say about my story in the December issue of Lightspeed:

Written in a metaphor-filled style that interweaves elements from Grimm Brothers’ fairy tales, Damien Angelica Walters’ “A Lie You Give, and Thus I Take” is an urban fantasy allegory about romantic relationships. The characters here engage in a dance of sweet (literally) affection that sometimes takes a darker turn. The story evokes visions of standing in a room with mirrored walls and trying to decide what is real and which are only reflected images.
