I'm not going to lie, Surrender was not really on the top of my list of books that I've read in the past few months. It was just too much romance for me, and not enough epic adventure and magic and all of the good things like that. But when I heard this novella was released and was Surrender from the villain's perspective, I had to have it.

Although the writing in this story is very choppy and sometimes hard to follow, I like it more than Surrender. It was darker, and it made me more anxious than

I literally loved this book to the point where part of me was wishing it was a full length novel. If you've read my SURRENDER and JUSTICE reviews (as well as my Death Sentence review) you'll know just how much I love her writing style and she certainly doesn't drop the ball with this installment.

The language she uses is so destructively beautiful, its terrifying. I genuinely felt scared of Crestaos and apprehensive about the plans he has. I felt tortured for the Flames and what was coming for th

Having just recently finished book 1 in this series, Surrender, I anxiously dove into this one since I just couldn't get enough. I was pleasantly surprised with this short novella!

This book is great as it fills in the blanks from the first book. While everything is going on with the main characters in the first book, this book takes you on a journey and lets you know what was going on with the other Flames (you need to read the books to find out who they are. I'm not telling any secrets!!) and t

It was great to get to read the story of Surrender from the villain’s POV. Paille paints a vivid picture of just how evil Crestaos is, and even though the Daed warriors depicted in this story bend to his will, there is obviously a divide in their group and I’m intrigued to see how this develops, and how it will affect the future plans of their wicked leader.

It was something else to experience the cruelty and torture the Flames were subjected to and only through this story can one truly understa

Lantern & Poison is a short Novella that is told from the villain's POV. I have to say that I love me some bad boys but lord help us with Crestaos. Kaliel will do anything for the one she loves and Krishani will do the same. This novella takes place in the first book giving us more insight to the Flames and what they are and what they do. They have awoken Crestaos without fully understanding what they were getting themselves into. Crestaos is a cruel person and once he is awoken he is even w ...more

So it's always interesting to read from the villain's point of view, but this isn't exactly the villain's point of view. It's just what the villains do during Surrender. You don't get to hear Crestaos thoughts which I'd really like to know. I think he's slightly crazy. But maybe there is some plan to his madness. It does show how they capture the Flames they do and what happens to them. Nothing very nice. It is interesting to see the dynamics between the various followers of Crestaos. There is d ...more

Lantern & Poison is a quick read that introduces us to our characters in Surrender. It can be read as a prequel as well because it introduces us to the event that lead to Kalie's and Krishani's fate in Surrender

In L&P we get to know how Crestaos, the villain in Surrender, was ressurected. We also get to know more about the other Flames who were sarificed to ensure Kaliels' safety. There are also new characters, like the Brethens. A couple of which I liked, and some I dont. Overall, it's

I loved that the author decided to write a stand point from the villain’s view. Every villain should be able to tell their tale too in my opinion. Even though I enjoyed Surrender better, I still loved this one because she showed it in a darker and more fitting to that of a villain. You are able to understand what Kalliel went through with the Flames. This novella shows you also more insight on the love bonds between Kalliel and Krishani. I do hope that she does this with her other books, writing ...more

As the excerpt says, this is Surrender from Crestaos' point of view. This is a lot darker, more morbid version of Surrender. I liked this story a little better than Surrender just because there was no drama with Kaliel and Krishani's relationship. It was good but this cuts right to the good parts.

I really liked this story and thing it added a lot of dimension to the series. I have to say that I'm hooked and can't wait to read the next book, Justice.

I had expected this short story to be somewhat of a tie-in between the first and second book of this series however it is in fact chapters which were removed from the original book. You are thrown a little abruptly into the story but into the action that keeps a steady pace. I really loved the parts which gave you an insight to each of the flames. It has definitely wet my appetite for the second book which I am really looking forward to reading.

Full Review at: What's Beyond Forks?

This book helps you understand more about the villain, although I still don't understand why he's going through all this trouble. I get that he's power hungry, but I feel like there is more to it, and I'm not sure what that is yet.
