Having just finished Maas’ first novel Throne of Glass, I am incredibly eager to get my hands on this compilation of short stories. The events covered in this novella offer a ton of rich history behind Calaena – history that I felt almost cheated out of in the first book. I am therefore really excited to fill in the gaps and to better understand where this girl comes from. These novellas already exist as e-books, but I think I’m going to hold out for this compilation release before I read them – I liked the story enough to want to own a copy for my shelves.
