    1. Available to read on Tor s website.Loved this short story prequel to When the Sea is Rising Red Unlike many freebies which are merely marketing devices, this one like many of the Tor Macmillan ones, I ve noticed is really wonderful, and enhances the main story in a way that wouldn t be possible in the actual book At least, not without changing it structurally I actually read it a few chapters into the actual book, however, which I think I prefer I reached a pivotal point in the book after which [...]

      h, is for Hellisen2 Stars Seeing into the future is not a straight line You are given the choice of a hundred paths through a treacherous swamp Some will lead you safely onwards, others drown you, and sometimes it s hard to tell which is which, This is a beautifully worded short story I have a dozen highlighted sections in these short ten pages, so it pains me a bit to give this a two However, as a character driven short story I just felt I didn t have sufficient time to become invested in the m [...]


    3. I think this is probably one of those cases where I have to be invested in the author s world for the short story to work for me This fantasy story, available to read online here, is a prequel to the 2012 YA novel When the Sea Is Rising Red This short story has some lovely, evocative writing and some interesting thoughts about the choices we make and the different paths our choices lead us to But ultimately the tone is bleak and the ending, for me, unsatisfying view spoiler the main character, a [...]


    4. Oh Cat, you slay my heart so I can actually envision a story set under water with Ilven and Owen Also, I really do love this book world And your writing And your characters Also, I missed Dash although Jannik still has my heart.This is probably as coherent it s going to get for now Will elaborate at some point.


    5. An interesting short story, introducing us to When the Sea Is Rising Red s world I can t say much about this one, except you end with a lot of questions that I guess the novel will answer Anyway, it succeeded in making me want to read the novel xD because I picked it up after I finished the short story.


    6. If only we could do that with our hearts, deform them to our whims and pleasure, secure in the knowledge that they will always return to a perfect state, as if they had never been hurt at all Read it for free on TorBeautifully written and haunting Even though this short story is a part of the bigger universe, being a prequel to the book When the Sea is Rising Red, it can function and leave an impression as a stand alone The world introduced here can seem complicated at first, but soon I found my [...]


    7. I read this on the day Tor.Com released it on their blog and loved it I ve been dying to read Cat Hellisen s debut, When The Sea is Rising Red, since I heard about it, and Mother, Crone, Maiden is a little prequel short about Ilven, Felicita s friend who kills herself to get out of a marriage I found Ilven s family interesting, and how they read the future Mother, Crone, Maiden is intriguing, and I highly suggest reading it why WOULDN T YOU it s free It introduces readers to Hellisen s writing s [...]


    8. We will always choose the path which gives us the most power A startling look at how an oppressive society can lead a person to make drastic decisions Ilvin is a woman in a world that treats women as property, the paths she wants to take in life are not for her to choose, so she is left with very few options.I look forward to reading Hellisen s When The Sea is Rising Red, for which this short story is a prequel.


    9. A thoroughly evocative prequel to events that transpire in Hellisen s YA fantasy novel, When the Sea is Rising Red There are some lovely clues hidden here for those who are yet to read the actual novel I was totally swept away by her lyrical, poetic prose and solid world building Read this for a taste of what s to come And it s FREE.


    10. It has its full impact of you ve read When The Sea is Rising Red Puts some of those events into better context, and makes this story even of a gut punch.


    11. I never know what to make of short stories, especially when they are prequels to a book, or even a series, but I will try Mother, Crone, Maiden gives us a little insight on Ilven, When the Sea is Rising Red s protagonist Felicita Pelim s late best friend, and the circumstances that led to her death Its title, in my opinion, is a very fitting one, and one charged with symbolism.According to certain pagan beliefs, there are three stages to a woman s life the Maiden, the Mother and the Crone The st [...]


    12. A marketing ploy, perhaps, but quite a nicely written one It raises questions, you see, that I would like answers to, and for that I ll have to read When the Sea Is Rising RedAbout Ilken view spoiler At 16, she is very young and not very wise besotted and therefore delusional, lost in dreams of a boy who kissed her once, right before his arranged marriage to someone else It is unknown if the boy reciprocates her feelings or if it was one sided, but I m voting for the latter, because I m old one [...]


    13. I remember hearing about Cat Hellisen s book When the Sea is Rising Red but didn t know about this novella until I saw it by happenstance from Wendy Darling s review Added bonus, it s still free from Tor here I was intrigued by When the Sea is Rising Red, but now, I m really excited This novella was the perfect way for me to be introduced to Ms Hellisen s very atmospheric and lyrical writing Favorite line so far would have to beKnowing the future is not about knowing the future It s about knowin [...]


    14. If you liked this story, you might also enjoy When the Sea Is Rising Red same universe and characters Midwinterblood Sea Hearts UK, Aussie The Brides of Rollrock Island US Monstrous Beauty and Men Who Wish to Drown Bone Season series


    15. Normally I m not a fan of the short stories that are meant to draw you into a new series I find that they usually don t stand on their own, and I m not all that interesting Mother, Crone, Maiden, however, has sold me on Hellisen s writing When the Sea is Rising Red is now on my TBR list as I am curious about this fantasy world Powders that can help certain people tell the future, and a young girl who trades something immense to get what she wants It s an interesting set up, and the writing was c [...]


    16. This is a short prequel to When the Sea is Rising Red that allows us insight into Ilven s mind as she uses scriv and magic to see her possible futures and leads to her to decided to commit suicide.The prose sis just as lovely and evocative as the book and it s really nice look into the world and the characters An excellent companion to WtSiRR and a pretty cool short story in it s own right


    17. Good Prequel which explains some back story from When the Sea is Rising Red I happened to read this after I finished the book, and it explained a scene in the story that added depth to the overall book I might recommending reading it after the main book even though it is technically a prequel.


    18. Going to give this 4 stars because of the interesting potential for world building It was mysterious and I liked it Enough to read When the Sea is Rising Red Perhaps I will do some investigating and decide.


    19. An odd, confusing tale I probably should ve readWhen the Sea is Rising Red first The writing is lovely, though.




    20. This was interesting Gorgeous prose and a very original and thought provoking story I m very curious about the novel now, so I will get started on it right away.



    21. Read this when it was first posted on Tor, thought it was good enough to go read the full book Love the style on this In this case, I shelved it as kindle, but read it on their website.
