Publisher Description

2016 Nebula Award finalist for Best Novelette

From Fran Wilde, the Andre Norton and Compton Crook Award-winning author of
Updraft.

The kingdom in the Valley has long sheltered under the protection of its Jewels and Lapidaries, the people bound to singing gemstones with the power to reshape hills, move rivers, and warp minds. That power has kept the peace and tranquility, and the kingdom has flourished.

Jewel Lin and her Lapidary Sima may be the last to enjoy that peace.

The Jeweled Court has been betrayed. As screaming raiders sweep down from the mountains, and Lapidary servants shatter under the pressure, the last princess of the Valley will have to summon up a strength she’s never known. If she can assume her royal dignity, and if Sima can master the most dangerous gemstone in the land, they may be able to survive.


“The central fantastical idea is pretty cool… nicely written… I suspect the world it’s set in might yield more fine stories.” – Locus

“Yeah I'm sorry but this gets only 2 stars because I liked the concept but not the execution. I'm not sure what the point of it was at all. Very short, barely anything happens, most pages are the same stuff over and over and OVER again, and the characters are very weird. The actions they took where off, nothing is explained about anything, there are weird guides in the middle of some parts that I guess are to adf some sort of history to it but ultimately fail. Either I've missed out on a few books in a series where this is a filler or something, or the author missed the mark here.”
