I read this novella as part of the Nebula finalist packet.

I enjoyed the first two books in this series by Vo, and I remember them as lyrical and compelling, but I read them a few years ago and can't remember details. Therefore, I approached this novella as a fresh, stand-alone read--and I loved it. It's not as lyrical, but it's emotional and profound, following a nonbinary cleric who returns to their home monastery to find their mentor dead and the teacher's family demanding a return of the body, in a violation of the place's standards. The family's demand is reinforced by the presence of war mammoths.

Ce roman court de Nghi Vo, le quatrième de la série des Archives des Collines-Chantantes, est certainement le plus réussi. Le retour après quatre années de voyage de l'adelphe Chi, l'archiviste non-binaire au centre de cette série, dans l'abbaye où il a passé toute son enfance, le place face au chagrin et à la tristesse car le vieil adelphe Thien, qui a assuré une partie de sa formation, est décédé depuis peu. Cette situation permet à l'auteur d'installer tout en finesse une atmosphère mélancolique, empreinte de poésie, ce qui donne un charme tout particulier à ce volume. Cet auteur s'améliore au fil de ses romans courts et cela donne envie de voir ce que peut donner son talent dans une œuvre plus longue.… (mais)
