I tried very hard, but could not get as far as the end of the second chapter of the first novella.

Please don't misunderstand me. It's not that this is bad writing in a general sense. It shows a lot of promise, and I'm glad that my money is supporting this author's work. I'm somewhat intrigued by the ideas behind what I did read, and the descriptive passages can be quite wonderful.

The problem is that it needs a great deal of copy editing. There are many mistakes, and where the mechanics are corre

Make sure you've read Justice (The Ferryman + The Flame #2) before you read this one! I know since this is 2.5 you likely have, but just incase, it's important that you do! That out of the way, this book was a great behind the scenes sort of look at what was going on in the bad guys camp during book 2.

What was so great about this short book was that you got the chance to understand Cresatos (cranky mean coldhearted evil thing that he is) and the Daeds (not quite all so bad as one might think the

Blood & Gold is a novella taken place right after Justice. Crestaos is just plain evil and will stop at nothing to get the flames. He wants them so bad he is willing to kill anyone or anything that comes in his way. He has risen the goblins and he is determined to raise the Mithronian Army. He has tried and has not been successful but he feels like he is getting close because he was able to raise the goblins. Crestaos felt the ground move so he knows that the army is buried deep into the gro ...more

While I love reading short stories from the perspectives of minor characters, I'm not sure that it's fair to say this is Justice from the villain's POV. I mean, it's a very condensed Justice, that's true. But we're not really seeing things through Crestaos' eyes. We actually get to view things from some of the Daed, and through the eyes of one of the Flames. And it's certainly interesting, but not really what I was hoping for.

We are able to learn

While still based around Crestaos and the Valtanyana, Blood & Gold puts a strong emphasis on the Flames and introduces us more to how their powers can be harnessed and what abilities they have.

Paille's language is flawless and, with much of the novella describing how the Flames were captured and tortured, it is also painful. I felt all sorts of devastation reading Blood & Gold (particularly for the twins, anyone?!) and given that I'm lucky enough to currently be reading an ARC of VULTURE

Wow, I could not put this down. I am in love with this amazing series and cannot get enough. This is a must read, there is no doubt about it.

Once again it was exciting to get to see behind the scenes of what's happening with the bad guys while the hero continued on his journey.

I did, however, find that this short story ended too abruptly. I was waiting to see the battle scene through the eyes of Crestaos, or even one of the Daed, and it would have been interesting to feel what Crestaos experienced when Tiki saved the day.

I was a bit confused by a few things that happened in this story, but I'm sure they will tie in to the next insta

Sometimes good things come in small packages just like great writing can come from those of few words. Blood & Gold may have only been 39 pages but it packs one heck of a punch with it's point coming right out and grabbing you. This novella shows us Crestaos and just how evil he truly is as he will stop at nothing to get what he wants and he has not a care in the world of who he hurts in the process. I can hardly wait to see what Rhiannon Paille has for us next in this series that I have gr ...more
