I probably should've done a reread of the other Tensorate novellas, but I remembered enough to see how this is a prequel framed by a contemporary telling. Short sketch of how the Protector came to power through the eyes of her confidant-turned-enemy.

ahhh, I love epistolary stories. Sign me the fuck up for some in-world document and main characters with potty mouths! The Descent of Monsters covers a time period of a few weeks during which Investigator Chuwan must figure out what happened at a remote, secretive research post. Mokoya and Akeha from the first two novellas are barely present, but much of the narrative twines Chuwan's investigation with Rider's search for their long-lost twin.

I thought the answer Rider sought would be much closer to home, but it's an intriguing sequel hook. There's a dash of thriller horror with Rider's account of the research station with a touch of X-Men here, and I want to know where this goes!… (more)

Oh, great. I enjoyed this so much more than The Black Tides of Heaven. It was great to have Mokoya's POV and have time to get to know her in ways not possible in the previous novella. There is coping with grief, wonderful relationships, monster-hunting, and even more world-building. I'm glad I've discovered this series!

What a great, interesting, wonderfully written piece of a puzzle in the Tensorate series... It is (probably) the best novella so far. The epistolary format worked unexpectedly well.
