Let me reaffirm my original statement that THIS IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT BOOK.

Now, since I'm re-reading, let me go into a little more detail of each story as I finish them. You can read my original gushing a little further down.

WARNING: This review contains spoilers for the first four books in the series


Crowns & Curses
The book opens with DC at age 13, trying to deal with an episode of bullying that occurred five years earlier. I haven't hugely connected with DC ove

A sweet, sad but gorgeous collection of 3 novellas from the POV of the three best friends of Alex - Dix, Jordan and Bear.

Dix’s novella starts you off by explaining why she was so bitter at the start of Akarnae, and then leads to her POV as she becomes friends with Jordan, Bear and Alex and then as Jordan is possessed. Jordan’s book is from his POV as he is rescued from Aven’s possession, and how he reco

I'm always on the fence about novellas, especially when you don't know how it ties into the story and whether it is actually mandatory reading. But we've followed D.C., Bear and Jordan throughout Alex's journey for 4 books now, and I'm so glad to hear that we got to hear from their point of view here. Most of it is told concurrently to Draekora/Graevale so that's definitely required reading before picking up this one.

They were hermits trusted companions.Because unlike people, books didn't care if you were a princess or a pauper. Their content didn't change depending on whose eyes travelled over their pages. Books just were.

*i recommend you read books 1-4 before reading this novella otherwise you will be spoiled!! *

I will now think of D.C, Jordan and Bear as main characters and not sidekicks because they are much more than that and this novella proved that.

I am so loving this author and this series!

Normally I don't bother with the .5 books in a series because they seldom tie into the story but We Three Heroes is definitely a must read.

This book is written as 3 short stories from the POVs of DC, Jordan, and Bear. We get their back stories and their feelings on what is going on in this adventurous tale.

You will have to read the first 4 books in order to understand what is going and I do have to stress that this book will give the reader more insig

Contains spoilers for Akarnae, Raelia, Draekora and Graevale.

Crowns And Curses is narrated by Princess Delucia Cavelle, heir to the Medoran Kingdom. As a young girl, D.C was well acquainted with the expectations of representing the Medoran crown, the increasing loneliness as she was sheltered from public life and educated within the palatial residence. D.C yearns for companionship, believing she has found a friend in Maxton, the young son of the High Court Judge but Maxton is deceptive and deter

I received a copy from Pantera in exchange for an honest review. (THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU)

For me novellas are always tricky because they’re trying to blend in with the main story without repeating too much and I can often find them boring because they don’t always have enough content for me.

But this was definitely not the case for these beautiful novellas.
This is the perfect companion for fans to read and cuddle during the long days before Vardaesia arrives in our lives.

SECOND READ 18/02/19 - 4 stars

I just read my first "review" for this book and wow: I cursed myself. Massively. I was in a book slump my entire reread of this series, so good job me. Way to go, jinxing yourself like that.

But anyway, bumped this down half a star and now I feel terrible. I'm going to blame it on the book slump again and forcing myself to finish this book so I can get to Vardaesia.

5 stars and more

It's no secret I've really enjoyed this series and this book was no exception. It's basically three short stories covering the same period as the previous books but from a different perspective.

The world building is superb as always. It's so easy to be swept up and away in this amazing tale. So vivid, so descriptive, just captivating.

So this is mostly about Bear, D.C and Jordan who are the main protagonist Alex's best friends. Many of the fantastic cast of the books are here too

*RE-READ FEB 2019*

I’ve come to the conclusion that Jordan’s novella is probably my favourite. It’s so raw and full of emotion and I can’t help but melt learning more about this character and how he became who he is and how he deals with certain events.


It's probably time I reviewed this one, seeing as I read it so long ago!

This companion bind-up of the D.C., Jordan and Bear novellas is a beautiful and brilliant addition to The Medoran Chronicles, and one that is so incredibly im

I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Confession: I haven’t really liked D.C. and Jordan since Akarnae. I mean, it’s not that I’ve disliked them exactly. It’s just, I don’t get excited about scenes with them in it. At least, not in the same way I do about so many other characters in The Medoran Chronicles.

I loved both characters when I first met them, but they haven’t quite met the mark ever since, and when We Three Heroes was announced I couldn’t help but think t

I read Akarnae and Raelia back-to-back and was blown away. I devoured Draekora and Graevale as soon as I could. So you know I was super excited when Pantera and Lynette Noni announced We Three Heroes. Stories told from the POV of Alex’s besties while I’m waiting for Vardaesia to be released, hell yeah!

D.C.’s Story – Crowns and Curses. In this short we get to experience what made D.C. the sassy ice queen supreme we first meet in Akarnae. We then follow her healing journey and see her become the l

3.5* Although I'm still hanging out for the final book, this was a pretty good read. DC's story gave a bit of background to explain her behaviour in the first book, and Jordan's went into his dark past and struggles after Alex released him from Aven's control. Although I enjoyed both novellas, they were both a bit repetitive- especially Jordan's, I lost count of how many times he talked about his scars. Bear's story I really enjoyed though. Even though it gave less unknown details than the other ...more

DCs & Jordan’s story’s we’re fine. We got some background and then you have to go and rip our hearts out AGAIN with Bear’s story!?!?!

This will contain spoilers... just warning you all.

When I started reading this I didn't want to expect to much, but it was honestly incredible.

In Crowns & Curses, I got a closer connection to DC. I never really liked her as much as the others due to her hostility. But honestly, I can now see why she treated Alex the way she did. I hate Maxton so much. This novella was amazing.

Scars & Silence, was indescribable. Everything we never knew about him was revealed. He never told Alex much in t

Do I need to mention here again that I loved it? Because I sure did.

Usually, I'm not a novella person at all, but I really enjoyed these ones. Getting to know Bear, Jordan and D.C. more is something that I didn't want to miss. I'm really amazed of how these three stories made me openly laugh at one moment and almost cry at another (almost because I did everything that I could to contain my tears as I wasn't alone).

Now I just have to survive till February, so i can get my hands on Vardaesia.

We Three Heroes provides an amazing and intriguing look at the lives of Alex's three best friends, and allows us to understand some of the motivations behind the actions of D.C., Bear and Jordan.

Stepping aside from the main story of the Medoran Chronicles, we get to learn more about Delucia's life before Akarnae and why she closed herself up when she was at the academy. We hear more about Jordan's childhood and the trauma he experienced at such a young age. And finally, we experience the pain of

Novellas and short stories aren't generally my thing but I like how Lynette has approached it within 'We Three Heroes'. Out of the three stories I think Bear's is my favourite.

This is a backstory of the three friends of the hero of the Medoran Chronicles. DC, Jordan and Bear all have quite a lot of trauma in their lives and Lynette Noni is an extremely good writer. I found myself being deeply moved by her writing and am looking forward to reading the rest of the Chronicles.

Once again Lynette does not disappoint with the three novellas that make up this book. A look and glimpse into the best friends of Alex, and I am now hanging out for the final book next year to wrap up the Medoran Chronicles.
If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Lynette Noni is a true Aussie wonder when it comes to YA novels ☺😍👍

DCs story is a little slow. But keep with it because Jordens and Bears are well worth the read. It's nice to see the same story unfolding from different views.
Rachel (rachels.geeky.stuff)
I'm really glad this book came about. My favourite novella has to be Bear's just because all the things I felt were missing at the ending of Graevale had found their way into the end of his novella, and it was everything I wanted it to be.

A truly amazing set of novellas. As usual, Lyn has gone above and beyond with this book, and it provides incredible insights into the lives of D.C., Jordan, and Bear. I can't wait for more of Lyn's work.

I had the honour of meeting Lynette at the book launch the day after I read this. She is so lovely and signed all my books!

This book was an emotional rollercoaster! Jordan's was my favourite, then Bear's, then DC's. The backstories of some characters destroyed me and some characters are such jerks!
