The Terracotta Bride

Author: 

Zen Cho

Once I started reading this wonderful story, I could not stop. It is set in the afterlife, with characters whose main goal is to avoid rebirth, because that is the ultimate end of their selves. The main character is a woman who died young, and who is married off to a wealthy long-time resident of the tenth court of hell. When her husband brings home a new bride, it sets a chain of events in motion that changes how she views essentially everything.
