Four starkly beautiful drabbles from Merry's point of view, as the moon overlooks different occasions: waiting for the walking party to arrive at Crickhollow; Weathertop; after the storming of Isengard; and then at Cormallen, before Pippin awakens. Each of them is done beautifully with an economy of words, not a one of which is wasted, but I think that my favorite is the one at Isengard.

Dana's usual superlative writing; a set of four drabbles, from Merry's POV. Atmospheric, moody, poetical.

Four moments of uncertainty Merry faces, each in its own drabble. Well done, strong imagery. Well, well worth the read.

Such lovely imagery in so few words. I love them all, but my favourite is at Isengard.

Very vivid descriptions. Dana captures each scene so well. These are lovely drabbles.
