Recommended to Wendy Darling by: Ann
Read in April, 2012

Available to read on Tor's website.

Loved this short story prequel to When the Sea is Rising Red! Unlike many freebies which are merely marketing devices, this one--like many of the Tor/Macmillan ones, I've noticed--is really wonderful, and enhances the main story in a way that wouldn't be possible in the actual book. (At least, not without changing it structurally.)

I actually read it a few chapters into the actual book, however, which I think I prefer. I reached a pivotal point in the book after which this short story became particularly haunting. But for those who choose to read this first, it certainly gives you a great sampling of the author's beautiful writing style.

Thanks to Annika for pointing me in the direction of this short!
