Publisher Comments:

Martha Wells returns to the Raksura with a pair of brand-new novellas!

In “The Falling World,” Jade, sister queen of the Indigo Cloud Court, has traveled with Chime and Balm to another Raksuran court. When she fails to return, her consort, Moon, along with Stone and a party of warriors and hunters, must track them down. Finding them turns out to be the easy part; freeing them from an ancient trap hidden in the depths of the Reaches is much more difficult.

“The Tale of Indigo and Cloud” explores the history of the Indigo Cloud Court, long before Moon was born. In the distant past, Indigo stole Cloud from Emerald Twilight. But in doing so, the reigning Queen Cerise and Indigo are now poised for a conflict that could spark war throughout all the courts of the Reaches.

Stories of Moon and the shape changers of Raksura have delighted readers for years. This world is a dangerous place full of strange mysteries, where the future can never be taken for granted and must always be fought for with wits and ingenuity, and often tooth and claw. With two brand-new novellas, Martha Wells shows that the world of the Raksura has many more stories to tell . . .

Review:

"Two novellas and two short stories expand the setting of Wells's dreamlike fantasy novels. In 'The Falling World,' a vanished envoy triggers a diplomatic crisis between two courts, and investigation reveals a long-forgotten tragedy. 'The Tale of Indigo and Cloud' sets two queens against each other, with an unhappy consort as the prize. Familiar characters appear in 'The Forest Boy,' a prequel to The Cloud Roads that examines a brief encounter between Moon and forest dwellers, and 'Adaptation,' in which Chime deals with an unwanted transformation and its disquieting implications. Wells is adept at suggesting a long, complex history for her world with economy, and, while her protagonists may not be human as we understand it, they are definitely people, sympathetic figures constrained but not defeated by their environments. Longtime fans and new readers alike will enjoy Wells's deft touch with characterization and the fantastic. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
