When the Tiger Came Down the Mountain by Nghi Vo
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
New silkpunk! While I really enjoyed the first of the Singing Hills Cycle books, I liked this one better.
Why? I just did, okay! lol
Seriously, it's all about the Tiger and the Scholar. The novella was written as a story within a story, but it focuses on the true kick of the core story. Beautifully written, evocative, and emotional, it first appears to be the "dangerous man tamed by the meek woman" trope, but it retains that real subtlety that tells a very different story for those willing to listen. :)
