THESE DEATHLESS BONES by Cassandra Khaw

These Deathless Bones: A Tor.com Original
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well, that was certainly a great way to start the day. What an awesome tale!

This is an incredible story about what happens when the second wife of the king gives the god-awful prince his just desserts. LOL.

Everything about this story is wonderful and wicked: the writing style, the narrator's voice, the language, the story... It's a perfect blend of beautiful narrative and truly horrifying events. Not to mention that while the conclusion was certainly satisfying, it leaves the reader wanting more. So much more!

A short story worth reading. Probably more than once.

And that cover is perfect!
