Summer in Orcus is a serialized free novel posted by T. Kingfisher on the Red Wombat Studio website. An overly sheltered girl with a bright spirit and big heart ends up trying in a small way to right some big wrongs. And most of the time, each effort just leads to another effort.
I cried. I have no shame in saying so. I cried more than once, suffering a little girl's heartbreak that no world is free of wrong. I cried at the author's afterward, that someone so talented would have such doubt of her own work. And I was happy to have read this story, where good hearts do not have to have smart heads, and where even little efforts matter regardless of outcomes.
