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

Review: 2016.756 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Efronia and Atarah make parallel journeys. Both came from places where magic was rare, both were rejected by magic-dominated groups, and they join forces to work together at place half-way between.

Con: This reads like the beginning of a great novel, but just as we've barely got the setting and characters figured out, it comes to an end.
