Recced because: This is a beautifully written piece that explores what happened to Astrid after the Voyage of the Damned. Small details of Astrid’s past help fill in her background nicely, and the author interweaves the story seamlessly with the text of Edgar Allen Poe’s El Dorado, creating a dreamlike golden journey.
