    One thought on “The Girl in the High Tower”

    1. a, is for Albin.2.5 StarsSometime I m an asshole, guys It s true I am mood driven, contrary and downright evil at times.The Girl in the High Tower has quite a bit of potential, it s true, BUT it s not a short story It s a world tie in story that has very little standalone merit As I haven t read Albin s Crewler series I had a lot of questions which remained, largely, unanswered I will say that there is definitely an intriguing concept at work in this world BUT, as I said, without further questio [...]

    2. Intriguing but it really didn t feel like a short story to me It left me with questions than answers I haven t read the Crewel series yet so that s probly my fault I will be trying it soon though but it still didn t feel fully developed and the ending was a bit abrupt I think it would have been better if had been added to it and expanded on a couple things.The writing kept my interest and I did like Loricel but overall it was just okay for me.As tie in story, I suppose it s good but as a shor [...]

    3. I had such luck with the other Crewel shorts as they were self contained glimpses into the world This one, however, was like a chapter of one of the actual novels and thus did not standalone much If you read the trilogy, it s probably a nice enhancement On it s own, however, it doesn t do a very good job of drawing new readers in or showcasing anything particularly interesting.

    4. I m sorry to say I did not enjoy this Loriel was an interesting character and I thought this might bring some insight into her mentality but I was disappointed.

    5. I probably would have enjoyed this story if I had read the Crewel series This short has interesting ideas, but there s not much information to go on if you don t know anything about the series.Unlike The Witch of Duva or Bridge of Snow, which are both also sort of prequel shorts, The Girl in the High Tower demands at least a passing knowledge of who characters are, and how the world works The weaving and selection process is sort of explained, but it takes most of the short to set that much up, [...]

    6. Humans are flawed creatures, Loricel Some of them don t deserve the time they are given.Set in the Crewel world, this short story features the Creweler Loricel essentially the person who weaves the patterns of the world As her story progresses she is freed from her years of hard servitude by a mysterious traitor.I liked this story, and I haven t read the main series I have to point out though that the short stories attributed to this world are often difficult to follow because the world is so co [...]

    7. This one was probably my favorite of the four novellas I read, simply because it gives some backstory on the character I was most interested in Loricel Of course, it doesn t give a whole lot of information, since it s only a short story, but it gives you a little insight on both her past and what had happened after she helped Adelice escape, and that s better than nothing in my eyes I do wish it were a little longer, and we had some events in her POV, but maybe will come along one of these da [...]

    8. I am sure that the readers of the Crewel World series are going to enjoy this book, but I would not recommend the book to those that are unfamiliar with Albin s dystopian series The girl in the high tower reads like a movie trailer to me it give you a taste of what the Crewel world is, and it does make you want to read it, but when you are done you realize you have just read a long advertisement for a book series that has little value in itself.

    9. This might be a better story if you re familiar with the Crewel World Without that, however, I found it less compelling There s scenes, like the ending, that feel like they should have import, but didn t on their own While the story provided some glimmers of interesting details about the Crewel World, it didn t do enough to make me curious enough about it.

    10. Albin does a great job with her Crewek World short stories They give you just enough hints about what s going on in the novels that you re intrigued about reading them This short gives background on Loricel, the creweler before Adelice.

    11. Having read a few short stories set in this world, I am very interested in reading a longer story set here.
