Descrições do Produto

Descrição do produto

When sickness comes to the country of Cymelia, alchemists and herb-witches create the healing brews that save lives. But this illness is different; the usual measures have little effect. Master Iathor is his city's best hope to discover a cure – but even with his alchemical skills, the plague is spreading through the city, and amongst his own household . . .

(This 6,000-word fantasy short story is a prequel to Herb-Witch, set some 20 years earlier.)

4.0 de 5 estrelas An interesting character study, great for a dollar 11 de fevereiro de 2013

This tidy little short story is a prequel to Herb-Witch. In it, we meet a young Iathor, trying to figure out how to deal with the plague running loose in his city.

There are several moments where we see the man Iathor will become peeking through his inexperience and concern. For instance, the turning point of the story is when he listens to his bondsman and realizes something he hadn't noticed because he was too focused on tradition. There's also a great scene where he works on communicating with the Shadowmaster.
"It is my understanding that my father has maintained lines of communication with the master of the shadows. This recipe I send should help immensely with the plague and may well cure it entirely. Plague is an enemy I think we all must fight, whether in darkness or sunlight. The bottle I send contains three equal doses of the possible cure; you may test it upon another before you trust your own health to it, and there should be enough left after a messenger takes a swig. -Master Iathor"

Sometimes prequels feel like they are out of time and this isn't really a younger version of the character, because the author has grown in their understanding of the character. This story avoids that pitfall and gives you an interesting insight at the same time.

Read if: You have read Herb-Witch, or you want a teaser for the larger books after it.

Skip if: You can't read about contagious coughing sicknesses.

Also read: Herb-Witch (Lord Alchemist Duology), naturally.

4.0 de 5 estrelas an interesting bit 30 de julho de 2013

Coming to this just after having read All That Glitters, I had a bit of knowledge about the universe of these books, but I suspect I will want to come back to it after I've read the other books in the series.

As it stood, though, it was a neat little medical mystery, with some interesting characters, and that was plenty for a short story.

This is a nice duo logy, I enjoyed the characters and the plot twists. If you enjoy a medieval world and a reasonable use of the herbal and alchemical arts try this!

Loved this author's writing style. I wish the story was a little longer but it was still good.

3.0 de 5 estrelas Wants So Much to Be Longer! 19 de janeiro de 2013
Por M. Hogarth - Publicada na Amazon.com

I'm a fan of the novels set in this universe, so I was delighted to run into a prequel short.

Operative word: short.

There's a lot I like about this story: I liked the set-up. I liked the setting, which once again is evocative and fascinating (the plague masks make for a nice motif). I liked the magic system... and of course, I like the lord alchemist. And I thought telling a lot of the story in the form of letters was clever and revealing about the characters and their relationships with each other and their superiors.

But I really wanted this story to be longer. There's barely time to sink into the medical problem before it's solved, and the origin of the plague is so fascinating that I really wanted the characters to dwell on it and tell me more about its significance! The emotional problems... you won't even understand them well unless you've read the novels. The author explains them to you but to really feel them you need more time to live with them and their ramifications.

The story doesn't feel rushed. Just... skeletal. Even the setting, which is one of the best things about these series, felt like it wanted more time. A novel would be too long, probably. But spreading out to novella length would have given "Plague" more time to breathe.

I recommend this one for fans of the existing books, who already have the background to understand the setting and care about the lord alchemist; it reads as back-story, and who doesn't love getting into the back-story of favorite characters? But new readers should definitely start with Herb-Witch (Lord Alchemist Duology) and Herb-Wife (Lord Alchemist Duology) before reading "Plague" despite "Plague" coming first in the chronology.
