The first time I read this series, I devoured the whole thing so fast, that I honestly wasn’t sure which events occurred in book one, so it was interesting to reread this.
I still absolutely love this world, and my previous review still stands.

After I read this novel, I couldn’t write for days. The story itself is incredible, but it’s the way Veronica Rossi writes that astounds me. Every sentence is so gorgeous and delicious. I want to breath them in, drink them down, stare at them forever. If I could read a piece of artwork, I feel sure it would read like this.
I know I should be telling you about the plot, which is amazing, the characters, who rocked my world, and the setting, which is brilliant. I’m not going to though. What gripped me the most about this novel was the complexity in emotions that it both presented and evoked in me. The way it wrapped its long fingers around my soul and pulled me down, into not just the writing but into the whole gorgeous concept, totally delighted me.
It has been almost four months since I read the first two books and one of the novellas, but I still think about this book fondly and frequently recommend it at my library.
Go read it now. I’m wrong about a lot of things but not this.
Upon rereading this book, I’ve realized it’s a second novel where more seems to happen in book two than what even happened in book one. I really like that. It keeps things interesting and doesn’t hestiate to take characters in unexpected directions.

So I’m back rereading this one, and I still love it. Roar is one of my favorite characters in this series, and it’s nice to know his backstory with Liv, especially as she’s frequently mentioned by rarely featured in the series.

I adore Roar and Liv. I can’t get enough of them, and I love that this novella focused on them. It was well-written and thoroughly enjoyable.
Buy it. You won’t regret it. I imagine I’ll read it again some day.
I enjoyed rereading this novella about Brooke, who is an easy to misunderstand side character in the UTNS series. She has a fierce, snarky exterior that makes it easy to overlook her hardships and hurts, which are what make her more human. For that reason, I think this is a necessary read for anyone who enjoys the series.
