This is very nice for Yrsa to receive the Petrona Award.

What was the reasoning behind awarding the Petrona to this book rather than the others? What made it stand above them?

I love Thora's character and the fact that this is a "locked-room" style mystery on board a ship makes it tantalizing to me.
