This was a nice, quick read via my Kindle app on my phone. It didn't take too long to read and it was quite addicting when I got into it as I wanted to see what happened next.
I think my favourite thing about this short is that between the chapters, you can see Lilac and Tarver having a conversation about the dream that he is recounting to her.
Lilac and Tarver are my favourite pair in this series for reasons I don't quite think that I can explain.
It was good that we got to see Tarver deal with civilians, rather than just soldiers like he was used to as it shows how he can deal with whatever odd situations he gets put into.
At the start I did like Gil Fisk as he was a nervous little new recruit, towards the middle I didn't like him for obvious reasons if you red the short, but by the end I didn't mind him as he did help Tarver. To me, that did redeem him just a bit.

The novella explains WHY Tarver is a retired war-hero. It’s a super short story. Unfortunately, I think it’s too short. On the kindle copy, it’s only the first 50% of the file. Then the rest is excerpts from These Broken Stars and This Shattered World. I felt cheated. But it IS just a novella I guess. That’s what they’re for. Just a little tiny tidbit. But this is why I usually don’t bother with novellas.
Yes, the story was interesting. Not what I expected. I’m kind of miffed, sometimes, about these stories because NO ONE FEELS LIKE A TEENAGER. They’re all so old and mature and totally adults. What about "what-it’s-like-to-be-a-teen?"?! Everyone is like 40yrs in maturity. Gah.
But hey, who’s saying no to more Tarver? He really is a fabulous hero.
Regardless the story was well-written and I enjoyed reading from Tarver's point of view. I was never a fan of Lilac anyway. I enjoyed learning more about his past and why he ended up on the Icarus with Lilac in the first place. This is a must read for fans.
