After the last book, I was starting to worry that maybe we wouldn’t see much of Owen anymore. Thankfully, though, he’s the narrator of this novella, so the reader gets a chance to see his side of the conflict with Gin and get some insight into what might happen in the future.
Even though this is a quick story in the series, it packs a big punch.
The thing that I really love about the novellas in this series are that they’re a mix of shorter action-packed stories and character development. I particularly like the opportunities given to fleshing out more minor characters in the series, as well as showing different perspectives of the protagonists.
This is probably my least favourite of the novellas in this series. The mystery behind the fight club is what drew me in – it just seemed interesting. Getting to see Savannah fighting in the ring was really the highlight, I think. It was fun watching her use her spells, and to see a bit of the clash between her hiding some of her magic and contacts, even while the reader knows that her “dark” side isn’t really a secret to Paige.
I was excited to read a story from Eve’s point of view again. I really loved her in Haunted, and was looking forward to more of the same.
