Story aside, Gale has a gift for language. I paused a couple of times just to savor a particular description–I can’t remember the last time I did that. Just sat and let a description sink in, let the images come to life in my mind. Additionally, Gale is a minimalist when it comes to world building, and I mean this in the best way. No info dumps. No ten-page-long let-me-explain-the-gods-and-the-government-to-you spiels. Instead, you step right into a very rich world, and get only just enough info to put the world together as you go. It keeps you thinking, keeps you intrigued as you put the puzzle of the world together in your mind, and I loved it. However, if you prefer the world to be explained to you, even a little, I suggest taking a deep breath, letting it out slowly, and just going with the flow with this story.Read more ›
Gale has written a unique and powerful vision of an almost steampunk-y world, yet one that supports supernatural entities (the Mourning Cloak of the title, for example); she's woven our physics and magical physics together into a perfectly workable whole. Her characters are fully formed individuals and, like this world, we get acquainted with them in moments of action throughout the work. The plot itself has a briskly inexorable pacing that takes us from the mundane (for this world) to the stunningly rewarding ending.
This is the precursor to her novel 'Ironhand' yet it stands alone as a brilliant novella by an enormously talented young writer. This novella is a must-read for fantasy readers.
