March 18, 2017: Read Burning Man.
A story told from an older woman's remembrances.
Her father died when she was a child and her bereft family moved into her grandfather's house. Her grandfather was disappointed that her father would not be Grand Thane, and tried to teach her brother all that was necessary to be Grand Thane when he grew up. Her mother was unhappy in the house, so when a foreigner came and made to move into the area, he also asked for her to marry him, from the grandfather, who gave his blessing.
The daughter went with them and the son stayed with the grandfather. A few years later, the mother died, after asking for a "dragon's claw", which the girl got. But her mother had died while she was away.
Later, when the girl was in her teens, she met a soldier who had been sent to help protect the girl's stepfather. The stepfather kept searching books and was troubled in his mind. He finally caught a witch and had her help him contact some of the Fairy Folk, because he had questions for them. The Burning Man was just such a Fairy Folk man, who had been burned by dragons at one point in his immortal life. A crisis makes the girl save her stepfather and she is now old and ready for death.
(view spoiler)[ The soldier who was her lover had been told to kill the stepfather. He was about to do it after the talk with the Burning Man, but she killed her lover with the dragon's claw to save her stepfather. The questions the stepfather wanted to ask were along the lines of "Was Usires the Aedon, the Ransomer on which our church and religion was built actually God, or one of the Fair Folk? Maybe even half-immortal?!" Since the Burning Man wouldn't answer, her step-father had to wait until after death to get the answers to his questions. (hide spoiler)]

The story begins with a military encampment stopping a young man who is pulling a sleigh. Two dead humans are on it. The commander of the camp requests the story from the young man, who says he is Dirk, the Wood Boy.
The castle and Lord Paul were captured by the Tsurani. Servants and military were unarmed, and Lord Paul gave his treasure to the Invaders. Lord Paul and his bodyguard were the only ones allowed to be armed. One night, the bodyguard got drunk and started challenging the Invaders. He was quickly replaced. The narrator was infatuated wroth Lord Paul's daughter. One night, every human was killed except the bodyguard, the daughter, and the Wood Boy. The bodyguard had tried to kill him, but an unfastened door and a dead fellow servant saved the Wood Boy. The Wood Boy went after the two runaways. After a struggle with the bodyguard, the girl attacked him and ran into the knife he still held.
The commander gave orders and, after the boy was gone from his tent, expressed his belief that the girl had dreamed up the scheme and was behind everything. (view spoiler)[He did not let the boy know, though, so as to preserve one last illusion of his love. (hide spoiler)]
