Indigo Court novella. Cicely and Grieve have been King and Queen of Winter for almost a year now and are finally starting to settle into their roles when they go to welcome a ship from the Golden Isle bringing new members for both the Court of Winter and Summer. When they get to the port though, the ship crashes through it and while they find food and clothing for all who should have been aboard, there are no bodies or other signs of life. While Cicely's thoughts immediately turn towards Myst and her allies, her head knows that it's unlikely to be Myst and they are likely dealing with a new threat. Now she and Grieve must find out who is threatening their Kingdom and how they can be stopped.
I have to say that as much as I love the Otherworld series and those characters, I really enjoyed the Indigo Court series because it really had a good storyline that flowed well and didn't go off on tangents that did not move the main story along. This was a nice return to that world with a story that answered a few questions and gives a continuance to the characters while setting up a new threat. I'll definitely be interested to see where Ms. Galenorn takes it from here.
