Thief of Songs - M.C.A. Hogarth

This has the potential to become very flowery, what with all the temperamental musician main characters and "poem names" (for example, one main character's name is Dancer on the Cusp of Twilight, "Dancer" for short). I'm enjoying it so far, although Dancer's POV can be a bit much.

 

It took me an embarrassing number of pages to realize why this is written in the first person. The answer is "third person pronoun avoidance." One POV character is male, so no problems there, but the other one is a hermaphrodite. Had this been written in the third person, that would have meant reading an awful lot of en/ens (Hogarth's pronoun choice for hermaphrodites - the neuter characters are "it").
