Mirrorwife, by Virgil Caine

This is an interesting mythical piece about a mirrorwife, someone the King had created and killed to punish his wife for infidelity--because he knew he could never kill her. How and why is revealed as you journey to the Queen's castle. though no names are given, there are plenty of other details worth following, and you can take side visits down the locations where you stop, e.g. a courtyard to observe a fountain or flowers. You can also do the whole click-and-change-the-link-name thing to somewhat alter your options when you visit the Queen. There are no ways to lose, only delay, and the game establishes your hesitance pretty well if you stand back and examine stuff.

This is straightforward and well-written and I can see it getting a recommendation.
