I really love these in between books for this series. They give you so much more detail about each member of the Garde then you would get from just reading the book. Number Nine's story is really interesting, getting to know him as a character is awesome. You get to learn exactly how he ended up in the situation he was in with the previous book and it sets up the next book really nicely, which I now can't wait for. His cepan, Sandor was really interesting as well and I loved learning about both of their backgrounds and how they stayed hidden for many years. Also, I really like how Number Nine aka Stanley is really different from the other members of the Garde and also how he changes over time, given what has happened to him. It really gives more depth to his character than what was shown in The Power of Six. If you haven't read both the two in between books yet you definitely should because they are really informative with plently of backstory. Go read them now, they are both awesome.
