Stories of the Raksura, Volume One: The Falling World & The Tale of Indigo and Cloud by Martha Wells

In "The Falling World," Jade, sister queen of the Indigo Cloud Court, has traveled with Chime and Balm to another Raksuran court. When she fails to return, her consort, Moon, along with Stone and a party of warriors and hunters, must track them down. Finding them turns out to be the easy part; freeing them from an ancient trap hidden in the depths of the Reaches is much more difficult. "The Tale of Indigo and Cloud" explores the history of the Indigo Cloud Court, long before Moon was born. In the distant past, Indigo stole Cloud from Emerald Twilight. But in doing so, the reigning Queen Cerise and Indigo are now poised for a conflict that could spark war throughout all the courts of the Reaches. Stories of Moon and the shape changers of Raksura have delighted readers for years. This world is a dangerous place full of strange mysteries, where the future can never be taken for granted and must always be fought for with wits and ingenuity, and often tooth and claw. With two brand-new novellas, Martha Wells shows that the world of the Raksura has many more stories to tell . . .

I'm excited to return to the three worlds. The novella and short story format works well to explore the further adventures in The Reaches. It's a treat to see how the colony is progressing, and the world remains vibrant and full of unusual peoples, cities, flora, and fauna.

While this book won't work as well if you haven't read the novels, it is perfect for those of us who are craving more stories about the Raksura. Wells has created a vivid and unique world, and her characters are an absolute delight. The glimpse of baby Stone made me squee, and it made for a heart-wrenching contrast to the old Stone as he listens to stories from long ago, about friends long dead.

An excellent collection of novellas that really help expand the story, and provide an amusing glimpse at some of the history hidden in her world.

Wells' other work is fantastic, so I've been looking forward to this return to the world of the Raksura. If you've not read anything else by her I cannot recommend enough The Wheel of the Infinite.

I was so looking forward to the new collection of Raksura stories, and it did not disappoint! The world-building and characters continue to be terrific, and the plots (especially the first story -- did not see that coming!) are very fun.
