elizabethmccoy: Plague mask; text "Plague" (Plague)
[personal profile] elizabethmccoy
When sickness comes to the country of Cymelia, alchemists and herb-witches create the healing brews that save lives. But this illness is different; the usual measures have little effect. Master Iathor is his city's best hope to discover a cure – but even with his alchemical skills, the plague is spreading through the city, and amongst his own household . . .

This 6,000 word short story is a prequel to Herb-Witch and Herb-Wife, set around 20 years (give or take a few) before the events in the duology. It includes approximately 2,000 words of worldbuilding notes in the glossary. Hopefully one will not need to read any of the glossary in the back, but for people who want to know more about the world? There's ample information, and perhaps an easter egg or two.

I had been planning on getting Herb Witch and Herb Wife, and seeing this post spurred me to buy all three of them. As soon as I finish 'The Ways of Winter' by Karen Meyers, I'll dive into these. :)

Plague was a good intro to this world. I'm about 1/3 into Herb Witch right now and I love the interaction between Iathor and Kessa. The mistaken assumptions that they each make about the other ring true!
