Meet the Author

Daughter of two Cuban political exiles, M.C.A. Hogarth was born a foreigner in the American melting pot and has had a fascination for the gaps in cultures and the bridges that span them ever since. She has been many things—-web database architect, product manager, technical writer and massage therapist—-but is currently a full-time parent, artist, writer and anthropologist to aliens, both human and otherwise.

Her fiction has variously been recommended for a Nebula, a finalist for the Spectrum, placed on the secondary Tiptree reading list and chosen for two best-of anthologies; her art has appeared in RPGs, magazines and on book covers.

    Bad

    This story was weird. When I was reading this book, I felt like half of the book was missing. Very confusing. J..... :(

    Not as good as other tales MCA Hogarth has written but still well worth reading.

    Potential

    There was great potential for this to be a riveting story. Personally i dont feel there was any introduction to the characters and i wasnt clear of who the characters actually were. There was virtually no sense of WHO the characters were. It just picked up in the middle of the story.
    The language was difficult to read, although once u navigated around the authors intention, it was a decent read.

    We know what's going to happen... Or do we?

    Do we? I was waffling! Predictable or not? More uncertainty than I'd expected in such a short story!

    I strongly suspect this is the "intro story" for the small series of short stories about the Le'enle, and as such, suffers from a case of, "hi, I'm what you get _before_ things start getting complicated." As soon as I double-check which one comes next, I'm betting that this one will be retroactively enriched by complications to come.

    NO, THIS BOOK IS REALLY EXTREMELY WEIRD

    It's a short story about this powerful magical person that died by using her powers saving Earth. . . . THAT was totally it?

    Good.

    I liked this story. The language was trying a little to hard to be unique and made reading a bit difficult. I don't want so spend 5 minutes figuring out a character's name, I want to spend that time trying to understand her and her world. But still it was a good story and I did end up understanding her. Emotion came across well.
