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.

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.
Sangu Mandanna was four years old when an elephant chased her down a forest road and she decided to write her first story about it. Seventeen years and many, many manuscripts later, she signed her first book deal. Sangu now lives in Norwich, a city in the east of England, with her husband and kids.
