The god disguised as a goldfish doesn't command. Still, Akahana knows better than to refuse his "requests", especially to help a pair of lovebug crabs.
Even if it might turn out to be the greatest risk she will ever face.
Backwards on the Way--the second of your favorite militant lesbian tree octopus sorceress tales--presents love in all its varied splendor.
Make sure you have also read The Eight Petaled Rose and Whimsical Beasts for Akahana's crazy further adventures.
