Blood & Brass is primarily a trio of well-crafted, well-written short stories linked together by a mysterious narrating storyteller camped outside the great city of Celadon-home to things both beautiful and terrifying. The first story, "The Clockwork Men", unwinds slowly building tension from beginning to end as the frightening truth of the alchemist's plans are revealed. Next up, perhaps my favorite of the three, "Behind the Red Door", is the story of a thief and the horrors he faces while taking down the score of a lifetime. The sense of building doom was masterfully created and sustained throughout the entire piece. And finally, "Beneath the Stone" is a tale of loss and betrayal with the search for truth and redemption ending in a most unexpected way.
The clever writing, and both the depth of setting and the history of the characters seemed to imply more stories are bound to come from the city of Celadon (of course, the title tends toward that assumption as well), and I look forward to reading more of these stories and more from this author.
