It is in the city-state of Leiodare that our story takes place. Anna armour is an inhabitant of Leiodare who, one night, is able to create life out of her own work of art. This feat will cause the city-state to undergo large-scale change. Smoketown is a multiple POV story, which is a key to advancing its plot. There are three POV to be exact, including Anna, the other two are effected by her action that one night. Smoketown is sparse on descriptions of people and places. The prose is neither grandiose or metaphor heavy -- it's direct and deceptively simple. A romance is integrated into the storyline and barriers crumble -- some were self-imposed. The city and the hearts, minds, souls of its residents are transformed . . . some are also redeemed.
