This short anthology contains two stories and a set of sketches by Andreas, the author's husband. The first story is from before the start of The Cat in the Cradle, and tells of Rano's final visit to Dylan, something which is alluded to it the first book. Here we see Dylan struggling with his feelings for Rano and the events which have consequences for years to come. The second story concerns the werewolf Nikolai, and tells the story of how he came to be in the situation he is in the first book. ...more

I quite enjoyed the short stories included in this. The first in particular as we get more background on what happened between Dylan & Rano that was alluded to in Cat in the Cradle which was nice since Rano was sort of the reason why everything started. Being such an important catalyst for Dylan's adventures, it was nice to get more info. The vision of the future that Dylan had while scrying with his father, that was icing on the cake. Oh how I wish we had that in real life! It reminded me o ...more

The first story is about innocence being lost in some ways. Dylan has feelings toward a friend who just happens to be a boy and Dylan doesn't see anything wrong with that. He doesn't understand why that could be a problem, but the events in the short make him more cautious. It changes his outlook moving forward. It helps you understand where Dylan is at in the beginning of the first book a lot more.

The second story is set between the first and second books. Nikolai tells Lali the tale of how he

Finding Fire takes place before The Cat in the Cradle, but you don't need to read them in that order. Flesh and Blood takes place before, during, and after The Cat in the Cradle; I recommend you read it after. Both (very good) short stories provide additional insight into the events of The Cat in the Cradle. ...more

I won't do a full review of this book, since it's just a couple of short stories, which are hard to review without spoiling. The stories are related to the author's Loka Legends series, which I haven't read. The shorts didn't make me want to read the other books, but I don't think that was their intention, and it's not a knock on the stories, it's just that this kind of fantasy isn't really my thing, as much as I like Jay Bell's writing.

After moving to Germany and getting married, Jay found himself desperate to communicate the feelings of alienation, adventure, and love that surrounded this decision, and has been putting pen to paper ever since.
