Vengeance at any price

Lullaby for a Lost World
by Aliette de Bodard (Goodreads Author) 

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Charlotte died to shore up her master’s house. Her bones grew into the foundation and pushed up through the walls, feeding his power and continuing the cycle. As time passes and the ones she loved fade away, the house and the master remain, and she yearns ever more deeply for vengeance.

Grim Short story! Beautifully written and unexpected. I liked it a lot.
