New scene from Shadow and Bone told from Genya's point of view.
This novella is almost like an extended scene in Shadow and Bone told from Genya's point of view. It goes over her thoughts about the letters she never sent to Mal. It also shows her relationship with the queen ever since Genya was given to her.
I would have to say I really enjoyed looking through her point of view. It was almost scary at how much she hated the queen and how she had made such a hard decision with betraying people. It seems as though the Darkling cared about her. I feel as though he planted her with the queen knowing what would happen as she got older.
This novella is a must read after you finish reading Shadow and Bone. It helps you understand a little more about Genya and the choices she made in the series.
I gave this 5 out of 5 bats.
