Publisher's Summary

Fonda Lee returns to the world of the Green Bone Saga with a new standalone novella.     

The rapidly changing city of Janloon is ruled by jade, the rare and ancient substance that enhances the abilities and status of the trained Green Bone warriors who run the island’s powerful clans. 

Pulo Oritono is not one of those warriors. He’s simply an apprentice jade setter with dreams of securing clan patronage and establishing a successful business. His hopes are dashed, however, when a priceless jade weapon is stolen from the shop where he works.   

Now, Pulo has three days to hunt down the thief, find the jade, and return it to its rightful owner if he wants to save his future prospects, the people he cares about, and his very life. The desperate mission will lead Pulo to old vendettas, vast corruption, and questions about everything and everyone he thought he knew.

good, but

There's great stuff here, but the main character gets carried through 2/3rds of the story. I feel sorry for Lee, because this pulp noir was one more draft away from perfection. I will read 'jade city', though, because 'jewel setter' was hit-and-miss on action but not on character motivation and THEME.

A warm homecoming to Janloon

What can I say? After voraciously consuming the series this past year, this was an incredibly satisfying novella to bring me back home. Few places are written as well as Janloon, a city that lives and breathes as each character does. Thank you Fonda Lee for another great chapter in this world (more please!) And thank you Andrew Kishino for your amazing narration. Every time I leave this world I feel a sadness and a longing to return and that's the highest praise I can give.

Just as everything else set in this world has been, this was just about perfect.

A Brief But Welcome Return to Janloon.

Andrew Kishino and Fonda Lee are a great pairing. The story isn't groundbreaking but it moving and if you want to return to Janloon it doesn't disappoint.

Perfect Novella

Man, while a prequel, it’s so nice to just dip my toes back in after all this time inside of this world. I’m sad I’m now out of Green Bone Saga.
