SO GOOD!!! These novellas are all INCREDIBLY PAINFUL, and I love it, and AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

I fell in love with Matthew. He was such a lovely character, and I loved seeing how he went from this sweet innocent child to someone who was so hurt (I know, I'm mean.) (Honestly that just sounds super wrong, and not really like what I'm even trying to say, but... You probably know what I mean...).

He was wonderful, and I hope we get to see more of him in future books.

And also did I mention how much this story HUUURRRTTT?!?!?! Because it did hurt! It hurt so much, and in the very best way possible, and AFGFJGHKFGHJKFGHJSFGJSDADFJGKFSAGJLFGFLJGSFLFGL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SO GOOD!

"Okay, wow, I totally thought this was called 'Long Cast Shadows' not 'Cast Long Shadows'...

I've literally spent months reading this title wrong, and I only ever noticed because my mum had to buy it for me, and was like 'Do you mean Cast Long Shadows? Because that's all that's showing up.'

Whoops!"
