I read Daughter of Smoke and Bone (the trilogy) a couple of years ago and found this novella in hoopla recently, reminding me I never read it. While the original series is absolutely YA fantasy, this is focused on the love story of a puppet maker and a violin boy, Zuzana and Myk, it's all cute and the only warring factions are off the page in texts from Karou.

One small complaint about the audio - Prague is such a central figure in this series. The author knew to have a violin boy who could talk about the fine Czech composer Dvorak. But the audiobook narrator destroyed his last name, pronouncing it Devorack. Sigh. I soothed my soul watching a pronunciation video on YouTube.
