As always, Martha Wells rocks!

Martha Wells has made it into my all-time top five favorite authors. As far as I’m concerned, she can do no wrong, whether you’re talking character development, setting,
World building, or storytelling, Ms Wells is an artist at the top of her game.

Great little set of gems

Short stories but nicely satisfying. I will go find the related novels. Very different from Murderbot Diaries but very enjoyable. The characters have quirks and non-Disney behaviors but are still very engaging. Excellent narrator, good at both genders. He used UK voices to distinguish ancient Mediterranean characters but I found it worked for me. Excellent characterization brought the characters to life without over acting.

Enjoyable as a stand alone or with the series

This was a really enjoyable and quick read. It was a lot of fun to revisit my favourite characters from Ile-Rien and Cineth again. I think that the stories give some great backstory to their characters and expand the already rich world that they exist in.
The narration for the audio book was very smooth and easy to listen too.
