A very well written short fantasy which some might regard as a fantasy-SF crossover piece. Bruce Arrington achieves a fascinating creation of both world and characters within the finely calculated framework of a long short story or a short novella. The story has more depth than the reader first suspects, and the rising tension through a series of revelations is well managed; the pages keep turning as the reader hovers anxiously over young Skaluni, wondering what will happen next. While Skaluni is a MG/YA protagonist, adults should enjoy this just as much. I personally felt that the ending, dramatic as it was, could have been still more powerful. Still highly recommended.
