A review by serenityasice
Fireheart Tiger, by Aliette de Bodard
A very good, Southeast Asian-flavored novella that explores abusive relationships and learning to heal from that, and something I found personally relevant. I felt the story needed more buildup in between major events, but Aliette de Bodard genuinely depicts abuse wonderfully in here, in several different ways, and I think it's well worth a read and discussion re. tropes surrounding romance.
