Apparently they are blood thirsty, adorable, and a bit ineffective

I suppose I should have actually started the review with something more substantive to the story.  But, sorry, not sorry, I'm too delighted at the Zombie Miniature Goats.

Storm Cursed could perhaps be summarized as "no good deed goes unpunished."  Neither good nor necessary mean easy, and that is definitely something that the protagonists face again and again through the story.  The threat, like it so often is, comes from outside, is larger than life, and implacable.  Yet, how it impacts everyone involved is deeply intimate.
