Review by: everstone on Oct. 11, 2013 :
I liked the historical elements to this short story and the inventive solution which the protagonist came up with to protect her people and her lands. It was also interesting to read Gail Carriger's first professional sale and reflect on how her writing style has evolved and how her short form differs to her long form.

As a parasol protectorate fan who devoured each of the books in an hour rather than days, I was looking forward to immersing myself in another historical fantasy. This didn't really do it for me, but it's a short feel-good story that is well-written and should appeal to those who only have minutes to spare.

I loved this. Gail Carriger's writing is fabulous in any context and this historical fantasy was a great little tale that passed a bit of time I had to spare in a very entertaining way.

I really enjoyed this. It's the first short story by Gail Carriger that I'd ever read. I was fascinated by the historical context so I had to look it up after reading the story. The way Carriger tells it is better.

I liked it. Interesting depiction of one of the civilisations that came up against the Romans. Centurions, slim odds for the underdogs, what's not to like?

Fair warning: this is nothing like the Parasol Protectorate books, so don't expect it to be.
