Fairytale to read after you read other stories in the series
This short story did not work as a stand-alone piece for me. I have not read other stories in this world so I found the references to the magical system confusing and I had a hard time figuring out who the characters were.
Outside the context of a bigger story, the appearance of this unknown person Divinia to Alma had no relevance to this reader. Why did Divinia want to curse the baby princess? Were the odd words really a curse? What was the relationship between Alma and Divinia? What was the object that Divinia came to get? I finished the story with way more questions than the story answered. When I read the couple chapters of the first book in the series that were included after the short story, I was a little less confused about the magic but still have lots of questions.
There were some definite positives in the story. The concept of sewing with magic and using gems to craft garments was interesting. I also liked reading about Alma's self-confidence issues and how she had worked to overcome them. I also think that if I had read other books in the series first so I was already familiar with the world and characters then the parts that confused me in this story wouldn't have been a distraction from the story line.
So ... I recommend that you read this story AFTER you are familiar with the world the author is creating in her "Rook and Shadow" series not as a way to try out the series as I attempted to do.
