Book Info: Genre: Fantasy
Reading Level: Adult
Recommended for: anyone who enjoyed Dreams of the Compass Rose or enjoys beautiful stories
Trigger Warnings: Patricide
Disclosure: I picked this up on Smashwords, where it happened to be free, because I enjoyed the novel Dreams of the Compass Rose, in which universe this story is set. No review was requested. All opinions are my own.
Synopsis: What occult mysteries tie together a magical disappearing lake, a courageous young birdcatcher, a hidden god, and the savage politics of an ancient kingdom?
My Thoughts: I really enjoyed Dreams of the Compass Rose (review here where formatting allowed), so when I discovered this short story was set in that universe, I just had to read it.

This story fit perfectly into that universe. There is nothing I can really tell you about the story without ruining, but I loved it. It was a brilliant, beautiful and bright jewel of a story. I am absolutely resolved to pick up any Vera Nazarian books and stories I do not already have, so watch for another Vera Nazarian marathon to come at another time.
