Short story time

Children of Thorns, Children of Water (Dominion of the Fallen, #1.5)
by Aliette de Bodard

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Desperate people come to take a test, in hopes of being taken into a house of fallen angels. Two of them are spies from a dragon kingdom. Dark magic ensues.

I liked it. There was nice, creepy imagery and I identified with the main characters quickly. The world building was well done and the narrative flowed well and kept me hooked.
