The first story, The far-seer, told us about two worlds, one intelligent enough to explore other worlds, and the other not so intelligent to believe in a fake god. At least two people from this later world, Mela and her friend Bena knew the truth.
It took me a while to understand the second story where Ray is the Sun? Brenna maybe a bird? and Pitch an awl? Strange bed mates. Again quite vague, with an ending I did not quite understand. Brenna flew off on the orb, what about the chicks?
I thoroughly enjoyed the third story, Nearly Perfect. I like the fact that in the end Azure got to decide her own fate.
Zana’s Heart was also very interesting. That was a strange way of explaining how night and day came about, but that was fine. Every culture have their own explanation.
The last story was good too, but the end was so sad. Did Hwee-Kee just walk into her sure death?
These stories had their glitches here and there, especially with the omission of the “w” from many “was.” Otherwise, the stories were very well written. I had fun reading them.
Her humanoid characters are fully distinct, their culture and context and well realized, and her imagery will bring you right into the book. Overall, I would highly recommend it!
From the off, I was drawn into the charm of the first story, 'The Far-Seer', which tells a delightful tale of an alien race and their fascination of - nay, devotion to - a far away object in the sky. I was gripped by the rich description of the world and characters within it, instantly feeling right at home.
Following that was the somewhat Lovecraftian 'Through A Window' itself. A future classic, in my opinion.
Even through the next two stories, my attention didn't waver. Although I found the final offering - 'The Last Egg' - to be slightly slower than the others, it's charm shone through with the ending.
If you are looking for a book that will whisk you away on a whistle-stop tour of several different worlds, this book is the one for you.
