Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The story is complete--it has a logical beginning, middle, and end, and it gives a taste of a much larger world. The writing is solid, the plot is consistent, everyone behaves rationally.

Con: The only reason not to recommend this tale highly is that there's so little of it. If feels like a small part of a much larger whole.
