Synopsis:

Tender Morsels is a dark and vivid story, set in two worlds and worrying at the border between them. Liga lives modestly in her own personal heaven, a world given to her in exchange for her earthly life. Her two daughters grow up in this soft place, protected from the violence that once harmed their mother.

But the real world cannot be denied forevera magicked men and wild bears break down the borders of Ligaa (TM)s refuge. Now, having known Heaven, how will these three women survive in a world where beauty and brutality lie side by side?
