    Summary

    Plague! Thud games! Rats! Death! Catchwords!

    Super slow build up.

    Excellent Childermass character study and a meditation on loss. A what-if fic that manages to explore characters and griefs we already know in a new way, but doesn't ultimately change the outcome of the story. It's also written beautifully in the style of the book!

    Summary

    I was walking home when I suddenly heard my own thoughts as clearly as though they were being whispered into my ear. How wonderful. I had just caught sight of my Attolian, leaning against the cairn where the road forked one way for the temple and one way for the village. He'd been on his way home when he realised that it was near my time and so turned back to wait for me that we might walk together.

    How wonderful. And how easy it could be to forget that life is anything more than this.

    Summary

    With the latest murder - the first beyond Serkonos - the only connection that all of the Crown Killer’s victims share now is their opposition to the Empress. But that doesn’t mean Corvo or the Empress is behind their deaths.

    It’s a mystery. Daud hates mysteries— and he owes Corvo his life; he owes Emily Kaldwin for murdering her mother before her eyes. These killing are obviously meant to destabilize the Empress’ rule, and if Spymaster Corvo is spread too thin to uncover the killer’s identity, someone else will have to do it for him.

    Daud goes back to Serkonos, turns over a new leaf, falls back on old habits, picks up some new ones, gets a job and investigates the Crown Killer. More or less in that order.

    One of the best and most engaging Mshenko stories I've ever read. Plainly put: legendary.
