    This short story (~5000 words) by Gail Carriger is a fun, quick

    This short story (~5000 words) by Gail Carriger is a fun, quick read. For those who are a fan of the Parasol Protectorate universe, this is a stand alone story and in a completely different universe. This book feels similar to something that you would find in the Enchanted Forest Chronicles universe (author: Patricia C Wrede). In other words, clever and sometimes snarky characters who live in a magical world.

    I was quite impressed with how well Carriger used her 5000 words. Carriger was able to balance plot movement with character and world development fairly well. The writing felt quite natural and flowed for the most part. As a reader, I was happy to take the ride. I didn't find myself looking to see how many pages I had left. I was content to let the book guide me down the path. Typically, with novelettes and novellas, I am constantly checking to see how much I have left, because I have found that this type of story wraps up in two sentences or the story ends on a cliffhanger (usually for an introduction to the next book in a series). With that said, even though I wasn't check how far into the story I was, Fairy Debt does wrap up a little faster than I would have liked. I wish that the story was just a smidgen longer to wrap up things a little bit cleaner.
