This novella serves as a prequel to The Royal Dragoneers. The novella is about forty three pages long. The remaining twenty or so pages is an excerpt from The Royal Dragoneers.

The author lays a strong foundation for The Royal Dragoneers. His world and characters are constructed with care. The writing is solid. The action is believable. My only complaint is that the last part of the novella feels rushed. This is due in part to the way the novella ended and the fact that a key description is missing.

I liked the novella but the length was a concern for me. If you plan on reading the Royal Dragoneers, I would recommend this novella. Not only will you get a hint of things to come, you can also use the opportunity to decide if you like the author’s writing style or not.
