The Citadel of Weeping Pearls by Aliette de Bodard

The Citadel of Weeping Pearls - Aliette de Bodard

This novella is part of de Bodard's Xuya universe, which is a loosely-related collection of stories that take place in the same universe and with some recurring characters but each story appears to be self-contained.


Although I didn't love this story as much as I loved On a Red Station, Drifting, it was still cool and de Bodard managed to make a story about a leading scientist's disappearance and time travel really be about interpersonal relationships between siblings and mothers and daughters.


I just bought the newest novella, The Tea Master and the Detective, so you'll probably be seeing another review from me soon.
