    "Thanks, Jay Lake"

    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.

    "Good really short story"

    It is really too bad with Jay's passing this series ended and there will be no move Metropolis books. I've liked the rest of his works, but this one leaves much to be desired and I would skip it if I was you. It kind of doesn't do Jay any good to even have it in print.
