This book short connects the first two novels - These Broken Stars and This Shattered World. It also includes chapter preview from book two in the trilogy, This Shattered World.
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.
