Now, in this new story that bridges the gap between Birthmarked and Prized, Caragh M. O’Brien answers her readers’ most common question with a tale of suffering and determination from Leon’s perspective. Be warned. The story is a spoiler for the first book in the award-winning trilogy.This short story had great characterization. I loved getting to know a bit more about Genevieve. It also provided some very good clues to bridge the time between Birthmarked and Prized, but even better it was a coherent story in and of itself. Recommended to readers between the two books.
