4 stars!!!

In Her Wake is a novella from the Ten Tiny Breaths series. Even though it's a prequel about Trent, if you haven’t read TTB, I would recommend reading it first. I think it’s better to already know Trent and Kacey before jumping into this story…

4 stars!!


In Her Wake is a book that has left me feeling deeply conflicted and though I’ve finally decided on a 4 star rating, I’m not so sure it’s an entirely accurate representation of my feelings for the book. But before I jump into the review, I do want to clarify a few things:

- This is a novella that focuses on the Trent before the events of Ten Tiny Breaths so even though this book chronologically comes first, I highly recommend reading TTB before this one.

How the hell do you cross to get to the other side when you've run out of concrete? I guess you can slap on some wood to patch it up, to help you move on. But the bridge will never be quite right-- never as strong-- again.

Note: I highly recommend you to read Ten Tiny Breaths first before diving into this novella to avoid spoilers.

In Her Wake gave me a hard time to put my thoughts in order after reading it. It was so poignant and stirring, one that totally gives a serious emotional punch. In f

”The worst nightmare of my life is over, I reminded myself. I’m just living in it’s wake.”


Wow K.A. Tucker I loved this novella told completely in Cole’s pov of the events that landed our characters into position for book one. I strongly recommend book one to be read prior to this novella.

Cole’s loss, grief, guilt and utter despair is well written as was his need for Kacey to be okay.

"Kacey's spiraling. Just like me."

Cole falls to the pits of depression but his need to be connected

First things first....Warning!! If you don't want to be spoiled, do not read this before Ten Tiny Breaths!! Even though it says its #0.5, it really should be #1.5.

Ever since reading Ten Tiny Breaths, I've wondered how things came to be. Whatever happened to Trent and why he did what he did. Now...we get the answers.

I knew this would be heart breaking but I had no idea the connection I would feel between Trent, Sasha and Derek. I think that's the part that was the most devastating, well, who am

I loved Ten Tiny Breaths so I was so excited to get to read Trent’s story. In Ten Tiny Breaths you mostly get to see the aftermath of the accident from Kacey’s point of view. You know that Trent obviously had a lot of regret and was devastated by the accident since he followed Kacey to Florida, and wanted to make things better for her.

In Her Wake shows how Cole learns about the 16 year girl who was the only survivor in the other vehicle. He learns about how she had to sit in

Great follow up to Ten Tiny Breaths. My heart was breaking reading about how Cole was feeling. This novella is short, but worth the read!

I really liked Ten Tiny Breaths and I want to know more about Cole!

I destroyed her life and then got caught in her wake.
And I realize now that it’s exactly where I’m meant to be.

4.5 heartbreaking stars

Even though this is technically a prequel, it is imperative that you read Ten Tiny Breaths before reading this one. And having said that, this review is going to be hugely spoilery if you haven’t read TTB.

This novella tells Trent’s side of the story – back when he was Cole. From the night of the accident, right through the four year period until Trent and Kacey a

4 I love Trent / Cole Stars

In Her Wake is a prequel to Ten Tiny Breaths. You do not have to read Ten Tiny Breaths prior to reading In Her Wake, however I strongly suggest you read Ten Tiny Breaths first, just so you can experience everything for the first time.

This is Trent story, or as you known him as Cole in Ten Tiny Breaths. This tells his side of the story prior to meeting Kacey.

I’ll be honest, this is a really sad read. Coming from Trent’s POV, you can really FEEL his pain. He holds a lot
S.M. West

I LOVE this series and Ten Tiny Breaths was the first and still my overall favourite. Not an easy story to read but so gut wrenchingly beautiful. I was thrilled to learn that Ms. Tucker gave us this heartbreaking novella in Trent's POV. What a gift!!

This novella takes place before TTB. It gave me a chance to fully understand where Trent was coming from and why he did what he did. It also beautifully sets up one of the best and most heartbreaking moments from TTB, IMHO, as he
