Short Stories on Sunday: The One-Armed Queen by Jane Yolen

This short story picks up where Yolen’s Sister Light, Sister Dark and White Jenna leave off. I have read neither but have heard they are good. The Gender Wars are over, White Jenna and her husband King Carum are assumed dead and their three children are fighting to replace them. Scillia is an adopted daughter, The One-Armed Queen. This story gives the history of Scillia’s adoption, the context of the Gender wars, and Scillia’s journey to gather supporters and assume the throne. In addition to narrative the story is told through myth, legend, and song.

After publishing this story Yolen wrote it into the third book of the series.
