Nuanced but meaning conveying

Reviewed at: Chapter 7 -- The Chase

It is a story of morality and sacrifice, a commentary on suffering in the world.
This includes, but is not limited to:
Modern practices such as the suffering of people in poor countries for those that import goods from said countries.
The suffering of wild or domesticated animals, killed in order to be consumed.
There seems to be a solution to that, which is incredibly costly.
Would it not alleviate the suffering of these pained souls to give up cheap import goods or meat, even at the harsh cost?
Well that I think is important and thus I can only endorse this story which brings not only these topics, but also fantasy about eldritch gods controlling humankind.
I do like reading about eldritch gods.
