Interested in dipping your toes into another world? This reader certainly is. The question of immortality is one oft tackled in fiction and requires a certain amount of finesse.
The Le'nele present a beautiful paradox. The idea of something powerful enough to create planets and weather patterns deigning to interact with mortals. One could draw a parallel to the interaction of humans and ants, with the same sort of disconnect of experience. But that same example shows the care and empathy of the protagonist of this short.
Rather than disregarding small lives she chooses to interact, and consequences follow. The story itself is a tasty little morsel that introduces us to the concerns of the Le'nele and is worth reading both if you are a Hogarth fan, and if you want a taste of a culture that is in some ways very endless.
