I am really glad the author wrote this book; I really enjoyed reading it. First, it's from a a guy's POV, which is not very often that YA authors do this. It gives you a better understanding on who Collin is, and how he became a what he is - being the only Valefar with a piece of soul in him. It was interesting reading how he started being friends with Ivy and began to feel the pull between them. The book tell of his journey, if you wanan call it that, in trying to free himself from Kreterus' ...more

I love that Ward wrote this novella. It helps tie up a few loose ends and helps you see things from Collins POV. Thanks Holly!!
The first novella in the Demon Kissed universe. This time from Collin's point of view. The events here take place before Demon Kissed 1, but unless you want to get spoiled, don't read it until after Demon Kissed #4.

Here we see Collin in his element, as the leader of the Valefar, and we see his budding love interest for Ivy. We also learn more about Collin's past, what makes him different from the others, why he struggles with guilt and emotions Valefar aren't supposed to feel, and why it is so

Yes!! FINALLY something in Collin's point of view, (yes this is like a prequel kind of to "Demon Kissed" but like not really.) Which means sleazeball Jake is in the story too (ugh hated him in Demon Kissed still hate him before Demon Kissed) Geesh even before he realized he had feelings for Ivy, he had feelings for Ivy (totally didn't make sense in how I typed it but I swear it made sense in my mind) "They stared at each other in silence neither of them willing to move and break whatever was ...more

Loved this novella, great addition to the Demon Kissed series. Told from Collins POV about some of the events leading up to a turning point in Ivy's life. It was nice to see that Collin was feeling things for Ivy aswell and that he was fighting who he was and what he wanted for her, trying to keep her safe by keeping a distance between them. Still got my heart going and makes me want to re read Demon Kissed :)
Make sure you dont read this before the first 3 books in the series though or you will

This was a nice background to the Demon Kissed story. I would have liked it earlier in the story; and why it is split into two novellas is beyond me. I am not a fan of novellas in general as they are too short for my tastes and never tell enough of the story. For instance, Jake could have been fleshed out more as he was an important aspect of how this all began. But I enjoyed it just because it gave me more to a series I have enjoyed thoroughly.

I loved all of the Demon Kissed book and was very happy to seek this spin off showing Collin's side or point of view.
It was great to find out what happened with him before everything that occurred in Demon Kissed. Great story!
