It has it all, tigers, mammoths and a cleric who has a nose for trouble, and an even greater knack for recording and telling stories.
This time around our cleric retells a story of a tiger and her would be prey/lover, to a trio of tigers, who happen to know the story intimately, and their scout in order to buy them time to escape and avoid becoming dinner.
I finished it in one sitting during my work break, and I'm already thinking about re-reading it.
We follow Cleric Chih in another one of their travels, this time without Almost Brilliant (I missed them), where they encounter a group of tigers. And so, a night of storytelling ensues.
Although longer, it felt quite shorter than Empress of Salt and Fortune. We learn how stories are shaped by those who tell them to reflect their version of history. It was such a sweet tale with a refreshing ending and thought-provoking narrative.
I can only hope that we get more of Cleric Chih and Almost Brilliant.
