It's not only the format (4 novellas, written by two authors, all set in the same world, during the same period) that makes this original, it's the premise of how magic works in this world and how that drives all the plots in these novellas.

All of the stories are about people in desperate situations doing what they need to survive and try to protect the people they love. You end up rooting for them the whole time, fingers-crossed, that things will somehow work out for them. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. All the stories are pretty dark and one is very adult. Which definitely works for me, because I'm almost an adult (it starts around 60 right?).

My wife really loved this collection, especially after I tortured her by having her read The Three Body Problem. Luckily she dropped that a about 3 hours in and jumped into this one, so her trust in me was restored.

After magical portals open around the world, NATO and US forces have captured the portals and established bases on the other, magical world, but a Corrupted One keeps sending waves of attackers. That’s all setup: a band of Marines has to get an ally to safety, but weird things keep happening, including the appearance of a Ranger. It’s fun but don’t expect any interrogation of militarism/colonialism (though they end up fighting some greedy Earth humans).

Prelim Review: Though this is paired with THE EXECUTIONESS, I found myself less enchanted with this book. I emphasized less with the main character in this book then I did with Tana and while the magic was interesting to read about, I found the bitter truths that Tana sought after and fought more intriguing.
