*AzizrianDaoXrak's writing is both fantastical and familiar; it is often something you might expect to find in a legend, sweeping and worldly, yet drawing the focus down to the personal and immediate. I think one of the greatest things about *AzizrianDaoXrak's style is the amount of imagination put into each piece. Some of them feel as if they've been hand-crafted from dreams.

Every time I read one of AzizrianDaoXrak's pieces I am floored anew. I've been following her work for years, so you'd think I would be used to her tendency towards the amazing, yet she never ceases to surprise me by continuing to improve. Her writing is masterful, lyrical, mythical and unforgettable. Her style is rich and unique, but she is always eager to challenge herself, the result of which is distinct, fresh, enthralling literature that never fails to linger in the reader's mind.
LadyofGaerdonAzizrianDaoXrak's poetry floors me each time I read it. Her way of stringing together letters into words into images into stories is a punch in the gut and it never fails to evoke a response in her readers. She brings a fresh perspective to age-old questions, and she creates new worlds for her readers to explore. It is a joy and an adventure to experience her work.
I'm nearly who I'm meant to be.Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
