Book of the Week – Arcanum Unbounded

I’ve just finished this collection of short stories and it is definitely one of my favourite collections! In particular I love Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell and Sixth of the Dusk. They are complete stories in and of themselves, which I always find remarkable in short stories, but they could also be part of a novel (I hope they will be!). Silence is my favourite character because she subverts conventions about dangerous women in fantasy stories, but is actually an accurate representation of how women in conflict zones survive and protect their families. The book also shows how each of the series is interconnected which is incredible! the amount of work it must take to craft the stories and the overarching universe is breathtaking.
