Sunday recs: A novella

I just finished reading an amazing fantasy novella:

Martyr’s Gem by C.S.E. Cooney.

It’s a gorgeously written story with characters that jumped off the screen and will linger in my mind for a good while, I suspect. The island culture she’s created is fascinating and vibrant. Sharks and gemstones! Bantering, loving sibling relationships! A society where men and women are pretty equal! An interesting oral storytelling culture and stories-within-stories!

I love pretty much everything about this novella. Go forth and be immersed!
