Two New Novellas Set in the World of the Raksura

In “The Falling World,” Jade, sister queen of the Indigo Cloud Court, has traveled with Chime and Balm to another Raksuran court. When she fails to return, her consort, Moon, along with Stone and a party of warriors and hunters, must track them down. Finding them turns out to be the easy part; freeing them from an ancient trap hidden in the depths of the Reaches is much more difficult.

“The Tale of Indigo and Cloud” explores the history of the Indigo Cloud Court, long before Moon was born. In the distant past, Indigo stole Cloud from Emerald Twilight. But in doing so, the reigning Queen Cerise and Indigo are now poised for a conflict that could spark war throughout all the courts of the Reaches.

Stories of Moon and the shape changers of Raksura have delighted readers for years. This world is a dangerous place full of strange mysteries, where the future can never be taken for granted and must always be fought for with wits and ingenuity, and often tooth and claw. With two brand-new novellas and a pair of short stories, Martha Wells shows that the world of the Raksura has many more stories to tell . . .

"Two novellas and two short stories expand the setting of Wells’s dreamlike fantasy novels. [...] Longtime fans and new readers alike will enjoy Wells’s deft touch with characterization and the fantastic."
Publishers Weekly

"An excellent collection of Raksura stories [...] an essential companion to the Books of the Raksura trilogy and will be of interest to all fans of the Raksura novels."
