Review: Juice Like Wounds

Juice Like Wounds by Seanan McGuire

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a short story that was posted to that fills in a key story that was briefly mentioned in In an Absent Dream. Even though it was a key plot point in that book, it makes a lot of sense to be separated out from the novella. It would have changed the pacing as well as lessened the emotions from the novella.

It’s written almost slightly more poetically than the novella from which it comes and was an absolute delight to read – at least prose-wise. As you know, based on where it takes place in the book, it’s not exactly a delightful tale.

Highly recommend reading this immediately after In an Absent Dream to get the strongest emotional connection out of it.
