I'm going to submit the same review for all three short stories in this series, "Coming for Green," "People of Leaf and Branch," and "A Water Matter." They are all well-crafted stories that let us get to know characters who more or less acted in the background of the Green trilogy. They also further explain the complex workings of the Green universe in a satisfying way.
We lost Jay Lake too soon, and I'm so grateful that he was able to offer these stories before he passed. Grateful also that Katherine Kellgren was available for the narration. She is so expressive, and truly captures the spirit of this series.
A great start to a series that will never be as the author has passed away. From the little bit that is hear there is great content and a basis for a great series. I wonder if someone will pick it up and finish it.
I tried this without exposure the the set of books it relates to. It does not stand on its own. Sorry for the short review but I found it simplistic.
