    Reader ß Bone and Jewel CreaturesDownload Bone and Jewel CreaturesText with pictures at my blog jewel of a novella“Bijou’s fingers angled from her palms as if someone had bent them aside under great heat and pressure She shuffled about her cavernous shadowed workshop in parody of a bride’s hesitation step Eighty years a Wizard of Messaline–the city of jackals the empire of markets–had left their wear“How often do you find an elderly arthritic heroine in fantasy From the first sentence Bear had my attention Her enjoyable vivid writing kept itThe story begins with Enchanter Bijou in her workshop where she has been building creatures for herself and others out of bone metals and found objects She’s finishing a creation when her former apprentice Brazen brings her a mute wild street urchin Examination reveals the child has a necrotic growth in her arm and even closer examination identifies a foreign object as cause Fro

    Reader ß Bone and Jewel CreaturesDownload Bone and Jewel CreaturesSuperb and very imaginative novella with a 96 year old arthritic heroine I don't think this was done before at least not if the 96 years meant really old and not just some vampire or something years that has a uniue I think talent to design creatures from bones and metal and jewels and give them lifeIt would have been nice to find out about the magic system the castes the political and social environement; the idea of the known name and the secret power name I read in some other works too but I like it We claim the dignity of age she thought but the truth is age leaves us without any dignity at all After some research to find images that resemble Bijou's creations I was very surprised to find there are many 'Artificers' out there just take a look below I couldn't help but display many of the pictures I likedAndrew Chase's gorilla which I t

    Reader ß Bone and Jewel CreaturesDownload Bone and Jewel CreaturesBone and Jewel Creatures has an interesting setting which I’d love to explore – it barely scratches the surface of the potential magic and the political situation seems fairly sketched in – and an interesting character How often do you get a 96 year old protagonist with arthritis Although being a stubborn old lady isn’t uniue the fact that the effects on her work are touched on and th


  • Laurel

    Reader ß Bone and Jewel CreaturesDownload Bone and Jewel CreaturesOne of the reasons I love novellas is that authors will often be a little experimental daring In one sitting you can be drawn into a well crafted and imaginative piece that offers something a novel cannot It's almost as if novellas are our adult fairy tales they use a strange and simple story to give a moral lesson like an old fable I realize that my description is vague I

    Reader ß Bone and Jewel CreaturesDownload Bone and Jewel Creatures Bone and Jewel Creatures is set in the same world as the Eternal Sky trilogy but other than the shared setting they are unrelated This novella focuses on the 96 year old wizard Bijou who also appeared in the preuel novella Book of Iron Although it's not absolutely necessary to do so I am glad I read the preuel first since it provided background on the conflict in this storyThis isn't a book to read for the plot which is slow moving but one to read for the lovely

    Reader ß Bone and Jewel CreaturesDownload Bone and Jewel CreaturesI usually prefer Bear's science fiction to her fantasy but this novella is right up there with the best of her SF I can't do better than the review that follows and will also call out the beautiful production and artwork that Subterranean gave Bear's masterful tale Bravo 44 stars highly recommendedhttpswwweyrieorgeaglereviewsThe world building here is very good but even better is the characterization of the two viewpoint characters The first is of Bijou who is one of the most believable portraits of an aging artisan I've ever read She's set in her ways frustrate

    Reader ß Bone and Jewel CreaturesDownload Bone and Jewel CreaturesThis little novella is probably one of my favorite things Elizabeth Bear has ever writtenBijou the Artificer is a wizard of Messaline and she has remained such for over eighty years Now near the end of her life when she only wants to create her fantastical metal animals in peace a former apprentice has brought her a feral child poisoned by a sorcerous spell It is the clear work of Kaulas the Necromancer Bijou’s old enemy He has plans afoot and both Bijou and the unnamed child will find themselves being swept into

    Reader ß Bone and Jewel CreaturesDownload Bone and Jewel CreaturesThe problem with Elizabeth Bear's writing is that she sets herself a really high bar I have nothing to fault in the execution or construction of this story just that it didn't tug at my heartstrings or explode my mindThe best part of the book was the world and the magical creations that exist in it the bone and jewel


  • Tim Hicks

    Reader ß Bone and Jewel CreaturesDownload Bone and Jewel CreaturesThis is a good example of why there are novellas I'm sure Bear must have thought Suppose there was a place where someone can make weird prosthetics and that place had a necromancer They'd have to be in conflict of course How might that work Too much for a short story not enough for a novel Maybe the setting is a tad too weird for a novel; we have to get the story over with before we dig too deep into the details If books are meals this is a delicious lunch from an expert cookchef The two female leads are very good ideas
