I want everything this magnificent world has to throw at me

It was interesting to get this look at Kyra when we haven't seen much of her in the first book. I just wish this story had been a little longer and had actually included the wishes.

You can read this short story for free on Sangu's website here (scroll to the bottom of the page).
“Amba turned then. “Very well. This sea, right here. Swim out until you can see gold lights underwater. You’ll find a blueflower garden there, deep below the surface. Pick a single flower and bring it to me. If you succeed, you’ll earn your place in history. And my admiration. I’ll even give you three boons. Three wishes, for a single flower.'”

This novella was quite good. This is set at least twenty years prior to the events of A Spark of White Fire. It was interesting to see why Kyra did what she did and how it all turned the events that took place in the first book. I love this series so much, so that's why this novella felt a bit short for me. I don't want this story to end. I wish there was more detail about the three curses. However, I am glad Sangu provided this novella at all.

Probably would have enjoyed this more if I remembered who these people were. But it's a well-written and interesting short.
