This tale was well-crafted and deserving of high praise. It functions to flesh out the world beyond the court of the Hedge King, offering glimpses of people in distant communities and a sampling of the geophysical setting of this series. As such, I highly recommend it. Knowing the nature of series, it likely offers context that will be valuable for readers of the next books.
The group that traveled together with the merchant only had one other very well developed character, the acolyte. Even though he was a pretty well developed character and more likable than the merchant telling the tale there remains some mystery about him throughout the entire tale. The end was a bit short as it did not tell of their return trip which could have been another adventure. Still it ended at the conclusion of the travelers adventure on getting to their destination and concluding their business.
It is a a well written short and I look forward to reading the next books in this series. I give it four stars primarily for the hard to read names and the use of dialects and local language in the narration.
