Read full description of the books Jacks and Queens at the Green Mill:This was a pleasant 5 minute diversion that I read for free on tor.com. Although I knew it was short, I was still annoyed that it was short. Nothing really happened. It very much felt like a fanfic fragment - an interesting interchange happening in someone else's world.
I originally gave this 2 stars, back when I first read it in Oct 2012, but now (May 2014) I re-read it while I'm in the middle of The Shadow Society, and it all makes more sense, and really adds interesting depth to the main book. My original complaint was that it was just a snippet, doesn't stand up on its own, and I suppose that still holds, but now that I know more background, my enjoyment is greater. More like 3.5 stars.
