2.5 stars for a boring shortstory that was beautifully written.

Portrait of a Donor by Lissa Price is a novella in the Starters series. It is told from the perspective of Briona, who is a donor. This novella is a great addition to the series.

Can't say I liked its plot and also it added nothing to the main story.
Okay, it’s been a LONG while since I’ve last read anything from this duology. I heard that there’s going to be a third book? Well...

Anyway, I’ve went through hell and back just to find an epub copy of this novella AND I MEAN HELL. I spent a long time searching!

And so, nothing new to the main plot. Just a novella. I finally finished this series and I’m done with it and I’m just... finally.
Creepy time after the Spore Wars. The Starters have it rough.

Uma aventura curta na visão de uma das doadoras da Prime Destinations.


Outro conto curto que se passa no mundo da série Starters e Enders.
Dessa vez, Lissa Price nos coloca no corpo de uma Starter que foi doadora da Prime Destinations.
Embora a trama do livro não esteja diretamente conectada ao primeiro livro, ela se passa depois dos acontecimentos da primeira história e eu não recomendaria a leitura desse conto para quem ainda não conferiu Starters.
Entretanto, não é preciso ler esse conto par

-Foreshadowing Skills: I can't describe it, but you get this feeling of dread despite the "crapsaccharine" appearance of certain...aspects. I don't know how Lissa created suspense in what would logically appear benign and boring...but she did! Perhaps because we are used to the fact that nobody is safe
-Perspective: The great thing about 1st person is that you do get a strong connection to the main character, despite what 1st person haters say. However, you sacrifice some intimacy with the fr
A short story from the point of view of one of the donors from Starters, Briona. An Afrian-American girl, she repeatedly mentions being discriminated against for her skin tone. It covers her exit-interview at Prime Destinations and the day or so after.

This story was slightly better, but not by much. Briona is a character we (and Callie) only see being occupied by someone else in the novel proper. This gives a little peek into her personality and some insight as to what happens to most of the do

5 Stars

This was a really good short story. Very well developed, picking up facts from the series, and even being small the author managed not making crazy jumps on the plot. The characters well developed, the pace really good, the writing also great. Although the end had something predictable at the same time there was another twist that changed the predictable part. I really liked the connection made between these characters and the ones on the series. Great short.

Since it been quite a time since I last read Starters, this story was very very confusing. Even know when I read the ending I still can't think who they all were.

But other than that, it was a really good story, and it fits so perfectly between book 1 and 2. And makes me want to check out book 2. :)

Fantastic and the best of the short stories. But, it was also the shortest one as well. For those that think a super short story is not worth $2 (kindle version) I say most pay more than that for a drink when they eat out so I think it's well worth the money if enjoyable and this one was. I loved the ending.

This one was interesting because it was about a character we had already met, well sort of, in Starters. It definitely makes me want to dive into Enders to see if we find her again or if that is the end of her story.

It was good but not really relevant to the story. If read before Enders, it would really build some suspense for it.

I'm getting prepared to read Enders and that sneak pick at the end was awesome. Can't wait to continue this series. Great quick read!

So interesting!
Too short

I think Portrait of an Ender was better, but this was interesting as well.

Yet another fun and exciting novella. This one, I'd say, is the the most important to the story. I enjoyed it a lot and highly recommend it.
