Recommended to Wendy Darling by: Annika

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!
