BLURB:  In The Falling World, Jade, ruler of the Indigo Cloud Court, has travelled with Chime and Balm to another Raksuran court. When she fails to return, her consort Moon, along with Stone and a party of warriors and hunters, must track them down. Finding them turns out to be the easy part; freeing them from an ancient trap hidden in the depths of the Reaches is much more difficult. 
The Tale of Indigo and Cloud explores the history of the Indigo Cloud Court, long before Moon came to Court. In the distant past, Indigo stole Cloud from Emerald Twilight. But in doing so, the reigning Queen Cerise and Indigo are now poised for a conflict that could ruin everything.
Stories of Moon and the shape changers of Raksura have delighted readers for years. This world is a dangerous place full of strange mysteries, where the future can never be taken for granted, and must always be fought for with wits and ingenuity, and often tooth and claw. With two brand-new novellas, Martha Wells shows that the world of Raksura has many more stories to tell...

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
bookshelves: fantasy, aerial-shapeshifters, adventure, beware-of-the-queen, kind-of-magic, warriors, anthology

Two novellas about the Raksura verse, and 2 short stories.

-The Falling World
Jade and co, after the book 3 and after Opal Night stuff

Stone snorted at this example of naiveté. “Warriors obey queens. Us they obey as long as we’re standing there staring at them.”
“I noticed.” Moon pushed to his feet.

-The Tale of Indigo and Cloud. {i love this stoy :D}
what happen with the famous couple that name the current court?
very informative about queens, relashionship, and more.
love Cerise ironic humor:
Cerise had been worried that she might not have any queens at all. Then Indigo and her warrior sisters had come, and they were strong and intelligent and sensible, when they weren’t being rash, silly, and brave to the point of blind idiocy.
Raksuran life was all about living without killing each other.

-The 2 short stories I already know.: The Forest Boy (Moon) and Adaptation (Chime)
