it was amazing

I had a great time reading this novella! Seeing Sam at his awkwardest was something that I’d have never guessed but I adored the way he cared for his brother as well as his best friend. It’s wonderful to see him and Stef help one another out at times when they had to face life-threatening situations. I had never liked Meuric and Li, and this novella confirmed their hideous nature. Janan was a formidable man and here, we got to see why no one dared to challenge and oppose him. If you’re like me, who’d felt puzzled by the overt hostility of those who hated new souls, you’d want to pick up this novella. While Phoenix Overture did not offer us a direct answer, it showed us the hardship as well as the fears of those who followed Janan five millennia ago. Through seeing what they had to go through, I began to recognize a similar sense of insecurity that they had when they were forced to face the unknown. Did that give them the excuse to behave maliciously? No, but it helped me see that they’re victims and not the villains I had assumed. I guess I’ll have to wait till Infinite comes out to discover what Janan was really up to but if I could make a wish, I’d wish that Ana and Sam had their happily ever after in the end.
