I really enjoyed this story. It was interesting to hear more from Alodia and the relationship between the two sisters than we did in Fire & Thorns. However, it was a lot shorter than I expected. About 60% of this ebook is the actual prequel, and the rest is made up of excerpts from the first book and Crown of Embers. I was disappointed with the length and probably wouldn't have paid the $3 if I had known that ahead of time.
