Another gorgeous novella by Emily Tesh, and a wonderful follow up to Silver in the Wood. Drowned Country meditates on the questions of how you grapple with becoming an immortal forest servant and have a meaningful romantic relationship when you’re young and selfish. The answer to both of these questions is: not very well. Silver goes on two journeys simultaneously, one a monster-hunting adventure tale, and the other an emotional voyage to test the changing limits of his own heart and judgement. I didn’t predict how this would end, and I love Tesh for surprising me with a happy horizon at the closing.
