I'm so glad we get an insight into the Maker/Artisan mindset for once, after having admired the descriptions of their works in the novels.

Because it's Michelle West this novella doesn't just show them at their work but a critical time during the Sun Sword series - and that's why there is love and enormous sacrifice.

I think that this story is useful to better understand what are the Artisans and the Makers. Here, the master of the guild receives a special commission and discovers a new talented apprentice. (I loved Duvari cameo appearance.) However, I found that the story was a bit confusing at times and that we could have been given a bit more details about Fabril and his halls.

I would like to have a chance to find more about what happen to Cessaly at the end after she has made her choice. It would be grea

I love Sagara's work and she's one of my all-time favorite authors, but this story fell a little short. It was enjoyable, but it was also very choppy and at times confusing - I had to go back and read what I had already read to make sure I knew what was going on. I wonder if this had been a longer novella or part of a bigger work if it would have worked better.

Great characters and world. Doesn't get 5 stars because it is unnecessarily long.
