Miara is a young lowlander servant to the High Lady Lu Shi. She’s also a dreamer of prophetic visions. When her highlander mistress finds out of her talents she asks Miara to dream of her future. This short story is about their journey to their futures and to the lowlands.
The depth that went into the world building of this story is exquisite in every detail for a story so brief. The characters are fully rounded, vibrant, and sympathetic. The society that this is based upon is easy to grasp as well as it is fascinating and intriguing. There is romance and there is heartbreak. All the making of a truly great story.
I truly wish this has been a prequel or a longer novel.
