This is the prequel novella to the Apostates Series.
In my opinion, it will help you a lot if you'll read the 3 books in the Apostates Series, or even just the first so you'll be familiar with the world, characters and overall the plot of the story.
This novella flew by fast and I when I finished, it left me craving for more of this world. You could easily see that the world was well thought-out. The author is giving us a bleak view of a future and keeping us wanting more of this world.
This novella is a wonderful background story that shows us how it all started and how this dystopian world came to life and why. This book is not centered on a plot, and at first, it was hard to connect and read, but as soon as I had a few moments to myself, I was quickly reading through the book, and before I knew it, I've reached the end.
Each character has their own story but they are not connected. I think this is a wonderful origin story and Lars did an amazing job and even the gorgeous cover, made me enjoy this book a lot.
I love the cover art of this book so much, it’s so pretty.
